Tag of the Month

This is a quote from a site that my practicum student showed me today.  Tag of the Month is very popular among library students and a good resource for even the most seasoned cataloguer. 

Need help understanding MARC tags? Turn to Tag of the Month. This helpful resource features a new topic every month, including a description of the tag’s uses and working examples. You’ll find Tag of the Month only at Follett Software.

The Tag of the Month page also features links to other helpful cataloging resources, including the online version of Understanding MARC Bibliographic: Machine-Readable Cataloging, the definitive book on MARC, co-authored by the Library of Congress and Follett Software

    The tag of the month site is nice, but of course, it needs an RSS feed.

    You’re right, that would be helpful and appropriate (given that it announces a new tag every month). It is interesting that this is becoming the preferred resource for cataloguing students – at least from what I am hearing in Nova Scotia.
