MARC Records - General Statement of Use

While these standards define a universal format for bibliographic data exchange and the material types that can be described in the format, the content of most data elements within the format is defined by standards outside the formats, mainly the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules and the On-Line Audiovisual Catalogers best practice recommendations. For this reason, MARC cannot be copied nor resold without the express permission of Licensor and/or Access Educational Media LLC.
