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
establish the
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
(and more
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
and Blue
Grass, in Iowa, and Milan, Coal Valley, Port Byron, Carbon Cliff,
Hillsdale, Rapids City, Andalusia, Silvis, Colona and Cordova in
Illinois.  And

Any help would be appreciated.
