Long time lurker here. I’ve been in a confusing situation a couple of times already that I could use some help with. What if there’s an awesome LCSH that I want to use for a corporate body NAR in the 372 (field of activity), but the heading has a subfield x? Right now I’m working on an authority record for a board of real estate assessors, and the heading I want to use in the 372 is Real property ǂx Valuation (sh 85111745.) Is there a way to shove all that into the subfield a and still call it an LC heading? Should I go looking for a more appropriate controlled vocabulary? Skip the field altogether? Eat some cookies? I hope I’m not missing something really simple.
Thanks in advance,
