MARC 21 records

What are MARC 21 records?

MARC 21 is a standard for the exchange of information that allows for the structuring and identifying of data in such a way that it can be recognized and manipulated by a computer.

At vLex we have all of the sources of doctrine available in our database cataloged in MARC 21, so that it can directly be incorporated into library catalogs.

How is it helpful?

Having all of the doctrine incorporated into a library catalog makes it easier for the users (students, lawers, etc.) to find the content they are looking for.
