Dear Collective Wisdom,
One of our NACO team is having a great deal of difficulty identifying a rule or an RI that precludes the addition of the following see reference:
110 2 $aNanyang Technological University. $b School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences
410 2 $aSPMS
Within the university, we are aware and can confirm that this school is known by the acronym, SPMS, but when we received training in preparing NARs for corporate bodies, we were informed that since, in this case 'SPMS' did not refer to the entire name in 110, that it was not an appropriate reference. Specifically, in this case SPMS is part of NTU but the NTU is not seen in publications as part of this acronym/name.
Understandably, the cataloguers at NTU would like this acronym and we are most pleased to satisfy their wishes in this regard but not at the expense of creating an incorrect reference.
