This introductory MARC 21 Tutorial
is divided into three lessons:
- What Does MARC Mean?
- MARC 21 Terms
- Rules and Structures
lesson consists of multiple learning units and quizzes. Preceding each
lesson is an outline page describing the learning objectives of that
section. To assist your learning, a glossary of the common cataloging
and MARC terms is appended to the end of Tutorial and
hyperlinked to most cataloging terms appearing in each unit. The front
page provides a content table where each topic can be accessed
directly. The Related Sites on the front page, which include MARC 21, Understanding MARC, Tag of The Month, The Follett Neighborhood
and more, provide most updated documentation on MARC 21 format, as well
as MARC cataloging and retrieval practice. We strongly recommend that
you visit these sites for additional information.
