The "MARC must die" meme has resurfaced in several places lately. It refers to Roy Tennant's prescient article by the same title from 2002.
So, over the weekend I printed it off to re-read it and then discovered, self-described library-geek, Sally Chambers will be presenting a workshop next week (at ELAG 2011) entitled: MARC must die? Developing a shared vision for the future of bibliographic metadata.
Sally also gives a preview of her workshop on her blog: Will MARC survive ELAG 2011?
Any thoughts, predictions? Any worthy MARC replacements?
