Description / Abstract:

Scope and Field of Application

This standard specifies the requirements for a generalized information interchange format that will accommodate many types of data, especially bibliographic description of all forms of materials and related data such as authority, holdings, circulation, etc.1 It describes a generalized structure, a framework, designed specifically for exchange of data between processing systems and not necessarily for use as a processing format within systems. This standard does not specify the content of a record and does not, in general, assign meaning to tags, indicators, or data element identifiers. Such specifications shall be provided by particular implementations of the standard. The format may be used for the interchange of records using various communication media.
