About the Event

This online workshop provides an intensive introduction in three two-hour sessions to the OCLC MARC bibliographic format.

Participants will learn:

  • The structure of the OCLC MARC record
  • The coding for the most commonly used fixed field elements and variable fields
  • How to access and efficiently use OCLC documentation

NOTE: This course is designed for individual participation. Regardless of whether you attend as an individual or as a group, the fee for this online workshop will be charged for each person who views the session. All participants must register separately. This course runs Tuesday, December 15th; Wednesday, December 16th and Thursday, December 17th from 9-11am each day. Click on the link below for more information and registration details.
