About the name

From MARC must die!

Jump to: navigation, search

Apologies to anyone and everyone called Marc. This site is not about you. It's about a bunch of library metadata standards collectively known as MARC.

The name is taken from a 2002 article by Roy Tennant, with his permission.

The name is deliberately chosen to be attention-grabbing, outrageous and inflammatory. If the site manages to attract a community of contributors, that community may choose another name at any time. If we can come up with an alternative to MARC, naming it after that alternative might be nice.
