Policy and formulation
- Use specific terms (in contrast to broad terms preferred for field 372).
- Use whichever controlled vocabulary is most convenient for the cataloger.
- Use for actual professions or occupations; do not extend to non-occupational classes of persons or general descriptors.
- Use "authors" for authors of fiction, belle-lettres, freelance professionals, and others who are described as authors. Use a narrower term if that's what they're known for, such as poets or novelists
