Wisser covers the details involved in expressing archival description in the MARC bibliographic format, including fixed fields, main and added entries, subject added entries, and descriptive fields. You’ll learn about the application of Describing Archives: A Content Standard (DACS) as you’re guided through hands-on exercises to identify specific MARC fields and construct a record. You’ll also discuss the utility of MARC in descriptive frameworks and learn about resources available for assisting in the construction of MARC records to represent archival collections.
