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

Corporate Names

  • For works that discuss a corporate entity, assign the appropriate NAF heading for that corporate name using the MARC 610 tag
  • When a work discusses a corporate body that has undergone name changes over time, generally assign only the heading used by the body during the latest period covered by the work being cataloged
  • If the body was well known by an earlier name and that name is featured prominently as a subject of the work, assign the heading for the earlier name as well
