Abstract: The extreme flexibility of the MARC format coupled with the simplicity of a batch-oriented processing system centered around a sequential master file has enabled the University of California, Berkeley, library to gradually build an unusually large serials data base in support of both technical and public services. That file has been used successfully both as the basis for an accounting system for serial expenditures and to provide increased bibliographic access to the library''s collection of serials.
