Cataloging and Metadata Management: Using Medical Subject Headings (MeSH®) in Cataloging

Module 6—Geographicals

Geographicals vs. Corporate Subjects

  • Do not confuse the MeSH 651 field with corporate names that have a geographical term as the first element (e.g. Iowa. Department of Health). Corporate subjects are recorded in the 610 field and found in the name authority file, not in MeSH (Cf. Module 8 —Names or Work Titles as Subjects)
