05/07/09 2 Questions to ponder: Why do we need to select some data elements as  access points while ignore the others and what are the  criteria you consider as important for the selection?  Each tag and indicator in MARC has a meaning. All of  these tags and indicators work together to form a  standard data structure for information exchange  among libraries. What are the advantages and  disadvantages of MARC tagging system? Think about  this question in relation to human learning curves  (sufferings endured by many MLS students),  contributions to library automation, current metadata  movement, and many others.  Do we need MARC in the future to organize library  cataloging data?
