Template for MARC articles

Revision as of 13:25, 7 December 2017 by SarahHovde (talk | contribs)

This is one of a series of articles which describes a template that will allow for consistent and easy article creation on Folgerpedia. See Cataloging style manual for MARC articles for information about formatting the content.

This template is for recording information about MARC fields in Folger 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.

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.


MARC field Tag in the Formatname format contains [text]. The Folger uses field Tag to [brief description for non-catalogers if needed]. This field is [not] repeatable.
