Using common conventions and a shared language of tags, subfields, indicators, and codes, MARC 21―the latest code―is a powerful integrated record format packed with information so all librarians can do their work more effectively. But you'll only be as effective using MARC as you are informed about its capabilities. Covering both the big-picture fundamentals and the basics of nuts-and-bolts details, MARC 21 for Everyone is the best and easiest introduction to MARC 21 available. Packed with self-assessment tools including quizzes, helpful tables, and many examples of tags and subfields, this authoritative manual presents clear and practical guidance to get you up to speed and ready to apply MARC 21 to your catalog records.
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.
