212 Heading Corporate body Name (O;R)

Field Definition and Scope

This field is used for all types of corporate bodies except printers, publishers or booktraders (cf. 210).
Repeatable to show standard forms of names used by different institutions. As there is no authority form in a CERL Thesaurus record, no standard form has precedence over the other standard forms; they are sorted alphabetically.
