MARC 21 for Everyone by Deborah A. Fritz
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Evolving from paper ""card catalogues"", MARC (MAchine Readable Catalog) records make the vast network of information-sharing, interlibrary loans, system and consortia data communication possible. MARC records, created in tandem with the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, hold the keys to information for librarians and library users alike. Using common conventions and a shared language of tags, subfields, indicators and codes, MARC 21 - the latest code at time of publication - is a powerful integrated record format packed with information so all librarians can do their work more effectively. Covering both the big-picture fundamentals and the basics of nuts-and-bolts details, this volume offers an introduction to MARC 21. Including self-assessment tools such as quizzes, tables, and many examples of tags and subfields, it addresses: how to search MARC records; what the terms and codes mean; how different library departments use MARC; and how MARC record data should be presented to end users.
