An Assessment of the Impact of Content Standards on the Creation of MARC Records for Archival Collections.
Cataloging practices for archival collections are not standardized. While finding aids rather than MARC catalog records are the descriptive tool of choice for archival collections, in order for archival collections to be included in a repository’s catalog, MARC records must be prepared for these collections. This research investigates the impact of successive content standards for archival description on the preparation of MARC records for archival collections in order to improve representation of archival collections in MARC records.
