Over the past 40 years, the MARC record has evolved considerably to reach its current status as MARC21. Over roughly the same period, the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules have evolved in parallel, as have, over a shorter period, the ISBDs. However, there will be no AACR3 “ AACR2 s place will be taken by Rules for Description and Access (RDA), based on the principles set out in Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR). There has been considerable discussion of the continued relevance of the MARC format, the best-known example of which is probably Tennant (2000), and RDA has been criticised by Gorman (2007). FRBR, devised by IFLA, is explained by Tillett (2004).
The student will write an article about the current and projected future status of the MARC record. The article should pay particular attention to standards, to current developments in record formats, and to the impact of FRBR on the bibliographic community. The article should be illustrated by examples of correct construction of headings and access points in MARC21, and should include, as Appendices, two MARC records compiled to Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, 2nd ed, 1999 revision (AACR2R) and to MARC21 standards. A list of titles suitable for the exercise will be provided.
The length of the article should be around 2500 words (+/- 10%), excluding references and appendices. The style should be appropriate to, and the format should follow author guidelines for, a journal such as New Library World “ seethe Emerald site (http://titania.emeraldinsight.com/) for guidelines. You should state which journal s style you have chosen as a model for the article. Please note that style in this context refers to tone, academic level, and formality, not to formatting issues such as columns of text. Write and present as if writing an article for submission to the journal.
