I hope that you were planning to make a SACO proposal. A heading
naming a group of cities collectively would be a geographic subject
heading. An example is Hamptons (N.Y.) (sh85058600). It would need
geographic qualifiers for both states in which the cities are located.

Has anyone done a heading for a group of cities? I'm trying to
Quad Cities but I can't find any guidance in the documentation. The
example is the Twin Cities, but the Quad Cities is more than 2 cities
than 4 for that matter) so it's not quite the same.
5 670 Quad Cities white & yellow pages, c2002.
6 670 Davenport PL website, Nov. 12, 2002 b (The Quad-Cities is
name given to our cluster of cities along the Mississippi River.
there are five main cities - Davenport and Bettendorf in Iowa and Rock
Moline and East Moline in Illinois - but "quad" sticks as the name. If
count contiguous communities there are many more - LeClaire, Eldridge
Grass, in Iowa, and Milan, Coal Valley, Port Byron, Carbon Cliff,
Hillsdale, Rapids City, Andalusia, Silvis, Colona and Cordova in
Any help would be appreciated.
