Elements of MARC Records
Every MARC record contains numbered fields that themselves include various subfields and special codes. They are designed for computers to read, not humans.
Types of Records
MARC records for print, ebook, and audiobook formats contain differing information and coding. Much of the same information may be found in each, but the distinct formats require distinct coding to tell library systems what type of entity it is.
Some audiobooks are physical recordings on tape or disc; a growing number are exclusively digital. The latter are designated in WorldCat as eAudiobooks, while the former are sound recordings.
Lock in Current Prices with Banked Credits
Banked credits let you buy now at the current prices, or at a lower price when we feature a sale, and save those credits until you’re ready to use them. We keep track of your remaining banked credits and they never expire. To purchase banked credits, just place your order via the payment buttons on our PCIP and MARC pages; you may change the quantity during checkout on the PayPal website.
