All too often I hear that MARC is dead or something similar. And all too often it is based on a poor understanding of the topic. However, I've just read several criticisms of MARC that are based on reality. In Putting XML to Work in the Library by Miller and Clarke they discuss several flaws in MARC that are there. Just how important those problems are and if XML is the best solution may be open for debate but at least they understand MARC. See pages 102-116.
