|Definition:||The name assigned to an organization in the Library of Congress Name Authority File (LCNAF) based on the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, Second Edition (AACR2). The rules governing the formation of the AACR2 name and the organization name differ. The AACR2 name does not always include an organizational hierarchy.|
|Purpose:||Provides the form of the name for most non-Federal organizations. Helps establish links among the elements in the organization authority database. Allows users to search for organizations, including Federal organizations, by names commonly found in other systems.|
Choose the correct name from the authority file.
If a name does not exist in the authority file, then leave this element empty.
[In this example, AACR2 Name matches Organization Name]
