What are MARC Records and why would I want them?
A MARC record is a MAchine-Readable Cataloging record, providing a standard format for identifying elements of bibliographic data, such as Title, Publisher, Description, and Links to components. Basically, it's the modern-day equivalent of the cards in the card catalog of yesteryear. MARC Records are entered into cataloguing software so that end-users can search the online catalogue and be directed to a variety of resources within the collection that match their needs. Wolters Kluwer, L&RS (division) provides MARC records free of charge to Schools, Libraries and law firms.
