Subject: Field 368

Can field 368, Other Attributes of Person or Corporate Body, be used without a corresponding parenthetical qualifier in the 1XX field? All of the examples in the MARC 21 documentation and the RDA Toolkit seem to require a qualifier in conjunction with the 368 field. But see, for example, n 79054596, which contains 368 State universities and colleges $2 lcsh. Should this actually be in field 372 (Field of activity)?


Thank you.
