What I Like About Marc

  • It's the earliest rich data format that I know of.
  • It demonstrates lots of the data encoding techniques of its day. It may have invented some of them
  • I see a forerunner in the card examples in Scientific Amerrican.
  • It and the metadata it embodies is going forward into the future as part of the semantic web.
