M. Willer: Croatian Experience with MARC 21

Use of MARC 21 BibliographicConceptual level

Croatian cataloguing rules and practice & their implementation into the UNIMARC formats:

To follow or not to follow?Decision: to follow as far as MARC 21

allows it, not to follow where MARC 21 commands differently!

M. Willer: Croatian Experience with MARC 21

Use of MARC 21 BibliographicBibliographic conditions:

New types of materials (e.g. web resources) follow MARC 21Content vs. Carrier (Literary vs. Bibliographic unit) (e.g. e-resources, reproductions) change the practiceMain/Added entry (heading) different concept: follow MARC 21

Use of MARC 21 AuthoritiesConceptual level

Used for author & work headings; subject headingsMultiple biographic identities for persons

Used in UNIMARC although not allowed by rules

Compared to UNIMARC lack of:Type of entity code (Record label)Language of entity; nationality of entityCoded data fields for personal and corporate bodies; 260 Place NameTracing control (w control subfield: 8 < 13)

M. Willer: Croatian Experience with MARC 21

Use of MARC 21 Authorities

Practical levelCroatian cataloguing rules & GAREMARC 21 used as isno additions of local codes/fields

M. Willer: Croatian Experience with MARC 21

Some conclusionsGeneral observation:

Fundamental clash between national cataloguing rules & MARC 21 format use at the conceptual level:

What is the object of description (e.g. content vs. carrier)Main/Added entry (e.g. syndetic/linking structure: literary vs. bibliographic unit)Multilevel description method (e.g. record linking: multivolume publications)

M. Willer: Croatian Experience with MARC 21

Some conclusionsConversion UNIMARC MARC 21:

Loss of coded data (e.g. rare books) & information value of bibliographic data elements

New types of resources: well accommodatedMaintenance of the format: additions?Croatian cataloguing rules: national tradition?Users: Is there an impact, if at all?
