Initials Indicating Terms of Address


When formulating headings, do not confuse initials that represent terms of address with forename initials.  Initials representing terms of address are usually not included as part of headings.  However, they are sometimes included in headings and often included in cross-references; in such cases, don't forget to code them with subfield "c".

Example 1 (C. = ciudadano):

010:  : |a nr 98007557
040:  : |a CtY-BR |c CtY-BR
