MARC Resources

Follett Software Company is a division of Follett Corporation, a respected name in education, known initially for building our nation’s school libraries beginning in 1874.

Follett Software was chosen by Microsoft® to help define K-12 library software standards for this important initiative that enables the software systems that manage education to share information with each other. Playing a critical role in defining MARC record standards for libraries, Follett’s Understanding MARC Bibliographic publication was adopted by the Library of Congress to help train public and academic librarians in the use of the standards.
