This book is intended to serve as a short handbook to MARC cataloguers and as a learning resource to the student. The book represents a subset of MARC 21 fields delineating scope, content designations, interpretations and examples related to cataloguing of language materials - mainly books and serials. The subset contains only those fields which are likely to be used in average libraries with or without vernacular collections. MARC has come long way to achieve the status of the supreme world standard for bibliographic information interchange. It had gone through a critical phase of technological advancement much ahead of cultural change. This might be one of the reasons why even today MARC 21 needs strengthening promotion of its missions for resource sharing at a global plane
