UF and NACO: Corporate Bodies
AACR2 Chapter 26 Key Rules
Refer from different forms of heading under which a corporate body might reasonably be sought. Typical instances are:
- Subordinate heading and its variants to a name entered directly
- Name and its variants in the form of subheadings under the immediately superior body when the name has been entered under a body higher than the immediately superior body
- For bodies entered subordinately, the name and its variants in the form of independent headings whenever the name does not suggest subordinate entry
References from Inverted Names of Government Subheadings
Apply 26.3A6 as follows: If the name used in the heading contains an ampersand or other symbol representing the word "and" (e.g., the plus sign (+)), make a reference from the name using the word "and" or its equivalent in the language of the heading whenever the symbol occurs within the first five words of the heading. Make a reference from the full form of other abbreviations only if the abbreviation 1) occurs within the first five words of the heading, 2) is not listed in Appendix B, and 3) does not represent a proper name.
- Make an inverted reference (under jurisdiction) from the generic term in the name that indicates the type of agency (e.g., dept., board, committee) when this term is preceded by a word or words that may not be recognized as part of the name.
- 110 Michigan. State Dept. of Education
- 410 Michigan. Dept. of Education, State
- Make an inverted reference (under jurisdiction) from the first key word in the name and from the key word of an English form of name of an agency entered in a foreign language (regardless of the grammar of the language involved).
- 110 India. Ministry of Health
- 410 India. Health, Ministry of
If a government body is entered independently, make a reference from its name as a subheading of the government that created or controls it (cf. 24.17). ... If the body's name includes the name or the abbreviation of the name of the government in noun form, make the reference from jurisdiction followed by the name of the body, omitting the name of the jurisdiction unless such an omission would result in objectionable distortion.
