A corporate name is assigned to works that represent the intellectual or creative expression of a collective or supra-individual entity, e.g., political and governmental bodies, academic and religious institutions, clubs, groups, teams, etc. Enter the name in its authorized form as given in the LC name-authority file. If the entity does not appear in LC, add an entry in the Hollis record for the name as it appears, recording any relevant information to distinguish it from an authorized name.

If the item was produced by an entity of various constituent parts, record the highest element in $$a, then identify the subordinate unit responsible for the work (usually office, bureau, department, etc.) and record the name in $$c. Ignore extraneous or intervening entities (e.g., Harvard University, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Dept. of the Classics).

Note that conference and meeting names that are entered subordinately to a corporate body are contained in this field rather than in 111.
