Definitions Edit

Machine Readable Cataloging (MARC) is a

data communications format that specifies a data structure for bibliographic description, authority, classification, community information, and holdings data.[1]
data structure devised in the 1960s for exchange of descriptive metadata (i.e., catalog information) among libraries and other similar institutions. The current version is known as MARC21. MARC will be replaced by BIBFRAME (based on linked data principles) in coming years.[2]
