Thank you, Adam, for the confirmation.

I must agree with John on one point, though. The nun was president of the International Union of Superiors General (Unione internazionale superiore generali), which is headquartered in Rome. I was correct in principle about Vatican City not being in Rome or in Italy. However, that organization's being headquartered in Rome calls for both Rome and Italy to be Other Associated Places.

Ann,


I do think you have it right.   Not all events are 111s in MARC, only those that are planned in advance, have staff, etc., but among these are fairs, sporting events, meetings, etc.  These are established as corporate body name authorities.  Other events like natural disasters, riots, fires, wars, etc. are established as subjects and generally coded as topical headings (150).


I would agree the associated place is Vatican City.  The council was held at the Basilica di San Pietro in Vaticano, according to the NAR for it, and that is located in Vatican City.  Vatican City is an independent country, so I would not include another associated place for Rome.

Adam,
Thank you for the embarrassment of riches--i.e., all those Olympic Games in the 373!

So - let me make sure I have this right:
  • All meetings, events, races, world's fairs, etc. are 111s
  • All 111s are corporate bodies
  • All corporate bodies are groups
  • All groups are eligible for inclusion in the 373
One final quick question: Vatican II is an Associated Group for my nun. The Associated Place is Vatican City, which is surrounded by Italy, just as Lesotho is surrounded by South Africa. Am I right in believing that: A person associated with the 373 Vatican II would have Vatican City as an Associated Place (370 $f), but not necessarily Italy? Just as a person with an Associated Place of Lesotho would not also have an Associated Place of South Africa?

They each participated in four Olympics.    Olympic games are events, coded 111 just as conferences/meetings are.

Ann,

 

Since a conference is a corporate body and a corporate body is by definition a group of persons, I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t record one as an associated group.

Hello, Colleagues -

 

(Apologies to my funnel for duplicating this question.)

 

I'm making a NAR for a nun who was president of the International Union of Religious Superiors and, as such, got to be an auditor at Vatican II.

I would like to make Vatican II an associated group (373 $a), but the only thing is, Vatican II is a conference. Can I nevertheless put Vatican II into the 373 field?

Thanks!
