This is a great MARC reference for the work station bookshelf. The writing and diagrams are very clear, and the book is well organized. I would recommend locating a print copy of this book because some of my classmates encountered problems with readability of some pages within the electronic version.

This book was a good refresher but it is by no means comprehensive. I is a good way to get a basic understanding of MARC21.

I thought Fritz did a decent job walking us through MARC 21. Thankful I had a class to go with it though or I still wouldn't understand a thing!

This book did a great deal more to teach me about Marc 21 than my entire university course did.
