Access Points

Access Points


General information on the data elements defined for use in the 1xx, 6xx, 7xx, and 8xx access point fields. The definitions of data elements in these fields are carried over to other fields within the same group. This is particularly true of fields for name and preferred title access points. For example, many indicator values and subfields in fields 100, 600, 700, and 800 for personal name access points are defined the same manner.

Each general information page lists input standards, indicator definitions, subfield definitions, and coding guidelines that are shared for fields within each group.

Examples given in the general information pages represent a variety of field tags and types of material. For field-specific examples, see the specific field pages linked from each general information page.
