Demystifying Fixed Fields in MARC

Event Type: SWFLN Webinar
Date: 7/23/2020
Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Time: 11:00 AM
Description:
 LitF, GPub, ELvl, Huh? Why are there strange letters and numbers in the 000 and 008 fields in a MARC record and what do they mean? Fixed fields are a mysterious, but critically important part of MARC cataloging because they provide “computer-friendly” metadata for your catalog. Geared toward those who have little to no cataloging education or experience, this webinar will explore the importance of fixed fields and how to code them in a bibliographic catalog record, mainly focusing on books, but also touching on other types of resources.

This presentation is a part of the cataloging basics series of webinars that includes "Introduction to Library Cataloging Standards" and "The Beginner’s Guide to FRBR". It is recommended that participants view these webinar recordings prior to attending this webinar.
