MARC 21 Concise Bibliographic: Main Entry Fields (1XX)

Fields 1XX contain a name or a uniform title heading used as a main entry in bibliographic records. Except for the definitions of indicator positions and subfield codes that are field specific, the content designation for each type of name and for uniform titles is consistent for Main Entry (100-130), Series Statement (440-490), Subject Access (600-630), Added Entry (700-730), and Series Added Entry (800-830) fields.

A name portion containing open-ended date ends with a space when it is followed by other data in the same subfield; it does not end with a space when it is followed by another subfield.
