Title:MARC users: A study of the distribution of MARC tapes and the subscribers to MARC
Author(s):Griffin, Hillis L.
Subject(s):Machine readable bibliographic data
MARC formats

Abstract:My paper covers two aspects of MARC: 1) the MARC Distribution Service and 2) the MARC users themselves. The MARC Distribution Service is the arrangement by which the MARC data are sent off every week to each of the users. Each weekly issue of MARC is complete on one 300-foot reel of magnetic computer tape. Thus each user receives one reel of tape containing the MARC data for that week and a printed listing showing the LC card order numbers in the shipment, their status (new, correction or deletion), and the number of new, correction and deletion records, plus a total record count.
