Introducing… MARC Record Templates

You’ve been asking for them, and we are happy to announce that BestMARC now has support for custom MARC Templates!

As legacy MARC Magician users may know, Templates let you create starter MARC records for those custom materials that you create often. Starting with one of BestMARC’s over 40 material types, create a template with Leader, Control Field, and Data Fields customizations according to your specifications. Add common subfields you use, and enter text common to any item of this type.

When you catalog a new record using your custom template, all of your template’s customizations are applied automatically. Just fill out the specifics for the material and you’re done.

If you have a multi-user subscription, you can share templates among other users at your school or district-wide. This helps you create consistent materials throughout your entire organization.
