MARC and relational databases

The Electronic Library [April 1993]


Copyright (c) 1993

Abstract: MARC format is a well-established syntax for transmitting bibliographic records between heterogeneous computer systems. On the other hand, relational databases are the leading technology for the design of computer systems. Unfortunately, there seem to be some incompatibilities between the two. A solution is presented here, in accordance with the more recent standards about Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) and based on a real experience in an active library computer system.
