MARC Record Survey

The Library of Congress is studying the use of MARC records and the economics of continuing to provide these services. Some services may be discontinued as a result of this study, especially those elements not widely used.

If your library uses MARC records, regardless of how you acquire them, your feedback is very valuable. Click here to complete the Library MARC Record Use Survey. The deadline to complete the survey is May 22, 2009.

Thanks to our friends on LINC List and the Bibliographic Record Production blogsite for letting us know about this research study.
