MARC Coding

  • Topical subheadings are recorded in the following MARC fields
    • 650 $x, following the 650 $a
    • 651 $x, following the 651 $a
    • Note: only 2 topical subheadings are valid with 651
  • $x is not repeatable

  • Transcribe subheadings exactly as found in the MeSH browser, using lower case and ampersands (&) instead of the word “and”
