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

Geographic Names

  • In the rare instance of a work that discusses only a geographic entity (e.g., an area handbook or statistical survey of one area, with a title such as "Area Handbook for Zambia"), assign the appropriate heading for the geographic name as a corporate subject in the correct NAF form using the MARC 610 tag
  • Remember to distinguish between items that actually discuss the geographic entity and those that merely identify a geographic aspect of a MeSH concept, e.g., malaria control in Botswana. In this case you would use Botswana in a 651 field
