Understanding MARC21 Bibliographic Records - Online 

Why would you use a 651 MARC tag instead of a 610 tag or a 100 tag instead of a 700 tag? Where do you put the note about closed captioning? What’s with this 264 tag?

If you have questions about MARC catalog records or would like to learn more about entering records into your local system, join us for this seven-session online workshop. Topics will include: fixed & variable fields, subfields, tags, title and statement of responsibility, edition, publication, physical description, notes, subject headings, series, main and added entries.

This class will be held online from May 14 to July 2.

Class participants will access the course web site in order to read materials, discuss questions/issues in discussion boards, post assignments and participate in optional web chats. The instructor will interact with participants through discussion boards and optional web chats in order to offer feedback and provide explanations of material.

To receive full credit, participants must complete all assignments.
