Abstract: is a Perl 5 module for reading, manipulating, outputting and converting bibliographic records in the MARC format. The MAchine Readable Cataloging format was designed by the Library of Congress in the late 1960s in order to allow libraries to convert their card catalogs into a digital format. The advantages of having computerized card catalogs was soon realized, and now MARC is being used by all sorts of libraries around the world to provide computerized access to their collections.
