Thanks for replying, but no, not what I'm looking for.

On what authority is the literal term "marcorg" itself deemed an authority term?

There is, for example, a MARC code list for terms, names and title sources: http://www.loc.gov/marc/relators/relasour.html

I can find no comparable list anywhere that lists the term "marcorg" itself.

Subject: [MODS] seeking an authority source for marcorg


I am attempting to locate the authority source for the term "marcorg" as used in the following:

http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/v3/mods-holdings.html

Example 1: Institution only

<location>
<physicalLocation authority=”marcorg”>MH</physicalLocation>
</location>
This "marcorg" apparently refers to:

http://www.loc.gov/marc/sourcecode/organization/organizationsource.html

Source Codes for Organizations

marcorg - MARC Code List for Organizations. Online: www.loc.gov/marc/organizations/orgshome.html

But can someone help us with an authority query relating to marcorg, please?

Although I see authority=marcorg in several MODS and LCWA pages/documents on the LOC site, I have been unable to locate an authority list that includes "marcorg" specifically.

How can I confirm that "marcorg" is an authority term and where can I locate this?

(p.s. this has nothing to do with the marc.org -- mid american regional council -- acronym)

Many thanks
Neil
