MARC Wizard

In November of 2004, MARC Wizard launched as a software product with step-by-step tools to keep a MARC database up to date through services to update common record errors, subject headings, award notes, reading programs, as well as a record source for finding new MARC records.

Please note that beginning on November 1, 2018, MARC Wizard will reach its end-of-life and the software and connected servers will stop functioning.

See our MARC Wizard sunsetting announcement for more information.
