Understanding MARC 21 Bibliographic Records - Session #1 - Online 

Please Note: This workshop is seven weekly online sessions, September 5 - October 17. When you register you are registering for all seven sessions.

Why would you use a 651 MARC tag instead of a 610 tag or a 655 tag instead of a 650 tag? What is the difference between a 130 tag and a 240 tag? Where do you put the note about closed captioning?

If you have questions about MARC21 catalog records or would like to learn more about entering records into your local system, join us once a week for a seven session online workshop.

  • Fixed and variable fields, subfields, tags
