MARC (Machine Readable Cataloging) II

Page history last edited by PBworks 14 years, 11 months ago

Back to 1960s


The MARC format, created by the Library of Congress, automated cataloging. Cataloging was once the libraries' most central and costly activity, and MARC II automated the procedure and also served as the foundation for today's online cataloging system.
