Manuscripts: a MARC format; specifications for magnetic tapes containing catalog records for single manuscripts or manuscript collections by Library of Congress( Book )

5 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of a series of communications formats for machine-readable cataloging records issued by the Library of Congress is described. It is an implementation of the "American National Standard for Bibliographic Information Interchange on Magnetic Tape," z39.2-1971, Which was adopted by the American National Standards Institute (ansi). The ansi format structure was designed to accommodate records for all kinds of materials used by different groups of users, and this format structure has been used for the marc formats for books, serials, maps, films, and music developed at the Library of Congress. The marc manuscript format provides specifications and content designators (tags, indicators, and subfield codes to identify data in a machine record) for manuscript collections and single manuscripts. Since the Library of Congress does not have any immediate plans to distribute records of this kind on magnetic tape, the publication of this format is intended for the use of other institutions involved in creating machine-readable records for manuscripts. Map and music manuscripts can be handled by this format in conjunction with the additional data elements or content designators in the marc formats. The type of record code in the leader would specify the type of materials. (Author/SJ)
