MARC Code List for Languages

The 2003 edition of the MARC Code List for Languages is now available from the Library of Congress. This new publication contains a list of languages and their associated three-character alphabetic codes that allow for the designation of the language or languages in MARC records. References from variant forms and specific language names assigned to group codes are included. This edition contains 457 discrete codes, of which 55 are used for groups of languages.

It is also available on-line.
