$$t Title of a work (NR)

Use this subfield when the cataloged material is about a particular work by a creator other than the one listed in the 100/110, e.g. commentaries or reviews. Omit initial articles. If the cataloged work is a discussion of a work by the same creator as in 100/110, then enter a title in 630.


$v Form subdivision (R)

This subfield designates the form/genre of the material which contains the information concerning the subject added entry.

Subfield $$v is the final subdivision.


$x General subdivision (R)

This subfield is for adding a topical subdivision to a name or a name/title that is not more appropriately contained in another subfield. Cannot be used to subdivide $$v.
