Instructions for using form; please read carefully before inputting
Use the pull-down menus to select the appropriate MARC 21 tag for each
Do not explicitly code for an initial subfield in any field (i.e.,
$a, $w, $z)
Use the dollar sign $ to note a delimiter before the subfield code
(e.g, $x, $z)
If proposed heading is 100, 110, 111, or 130, supply the
appropriate indicator; 150s-151s do not require indicator; apply this instruction
to 4xxs and 5xxs also.
Do NOT include a second indicator under any circumstances!
1XX, 4XX, or 5XX headings with subdivisions require keying the
subfields by using a delimiter ($) and the appropriate MARC subfield code.
Add diacritics preceding the affected letter (e.g., M(acute)exico) as
appropriate. Please save time by copying and pasting from the list
of diacritics. Using this lists helps prevent typos and provides
a uniform name for the diacritic.
When citing geographic coordinates spell out the coordinates (e.g.,
47deg. 35min. 34sec.N)

formulating LCSH proposals.
