Notes

Abstract: The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) awarded a National Leadership Grant to the Texas Center for Digital Knowledge at the University of North Texas (UNT) to investigate the coding of information and metadata utilization in a large set of machine-readable catalog (MARC) records. The project, Examining Present Practices to Inform Future Metadata Use: An Empirical Analysis of MARC Content Designation Utilization, is investigating the extent of catalogers' use of MARC 21, the markup language used by catalogers worldwide to create catalog records.
