How do MARC fields and indicators impact display and indexing? What are the new MARC fields and how do they impact the OPA? This webinar will explore the relationship between MARC and OPAC. We will discuss new(er) MARC fields developed for RDA, as well as MARCfields that are no longer used. A list of MARC fields and a MARC quiz will be shared.
Audience: Staff working in Cataloging, Technical Services and Systems as well as any library staff working with the OPAC
