It looks like I added the superfluous reference. (Actually a program added it and I neglected to remove it before submitting the record.) It's gone now. Apologies to all.

I found this today in an authority record:

 

110  2   Alaska Fisheries Science Center (U.S.)

410  1   United States. ǂb National Marine Fisheries Service. ǂb Alaska Fisheries Science Center

410  1   United States. ǂb National Marine Fisheries Service. ǂb Alaska Fisheries Science Center (U.S.)

 

Are both of these 410 fields allowed or even necessary?  I would think that the second 410 field is not needed, because the qualifier in that 410 already identifies the superior body in the hierarchy.

 

The qualifier "(U.S.)" is added to the preferred form of name in order to identify it as a federal level government agency.  Generally, when a body is a hierarchical subordinate, we make the reference from the higher body and plop the name entered directly into subfield-b.  But I would think that we make logical changes that involve the additions to the name, such as omitting data that are understood from context within the cross-reference.

 

Or do we always make a see-from reference under the exact access point in 1XX for some technical reason?
