MARC Records Consultation

Academic Studies Press, an independent scholarly publisher based in Brookline, MA specializing in the humanities and social sciences, is seeking guidance regarding MARC records. The Press is rolling out a Russian-language digital platform called BiblioRossica to a North American library market. The platform features content from leading scholarly presses in Russia. The Press seeks a candidate for a one-time project to advise on the quality of the platform’s MARC records. Candidates should be familiar with MARC 21 and RDA. Knowledge of Russian is a plus but not required. 

The Press asks for a detailed report of the MARC records quality within two weeks of delivery of the files. The report should include overall compatibility of MARC records with library catalogs and areas of improvement. Compensation is a one time payment of $850 USD. Compensation for any consultation beyond the original project scope will be discussed with the candidate.
