Use this field to record the name of a collective or supra-individual entity with some relationship of responsibility for the material cataloged not otherwise listed as the main entry. This includes letter recipients, signers of documents, previous owners, and other instances of associated names. This field is not to record subject access, if the material gives information concerning the individual, the name should be entered in a 610.

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.
