MARC

The Tag of the Month is a great resource provided by Follett. Each month they provide an explanation of one MARC field with some examples. It can be nice when using a new field to read the LC, OCLC and this to get a better understanding of the field and how it is used. Just reading the documentation on the one field each month is a good way to become more familiar with MARC. However, they have had the same field up since June. I hope they are not thinking of doing away with this resource. Maybe it is on summer vacation.
