I just skimmed some basic information about it. It would SEEM to me (a total
neophyte at MARC, hadn't heard of it till you mentioned it) that MARC is
pretty complex, much moreso than is needed for this particular project.
More to the point, I can't seem to get my brain around if it is really
suited to things other than books. It seems to focus on bibliographic
information and such which may not translate well to paper tapes, disk
images, manuals, images, etc.
If I'm being too dense to see how it applies (quite possible) can you point
me to more specific docs that might help me?
I was thinking of something specific and lightweight as to record design?
