Template for MARC articles

Revision as of 14:26, 1 April 2015 by DeborahLeslie (talk | contribs) (changed formatting)

This is one of a series of articles which describes a template that will allow for consistent and easy article creation on Folgerpedia.

This template is for recording information about MARC fields in catalog records. Select the "piece of paper symbol" in the upper right of your screen. Under "edit source," copy the code below the line (<hr/>) into the "creating" page to get a head-start on creating an article for a MARC field. You may not need all the sections listed below; they are simply suggestions. See Folgerpedia Cataloging manual of style for more information.

Use the MediaWiki "find-and-replace" function for substituting "Formatname" and "Tag" with the appropriate values, by expanding "Advanced" on the Toolbar and selecting the icon on the far right.

Don't forget to remove [[Template]] from your article!


MARC field Tag in the Formatname format contains [text]. This field is repeatable.
