NEFLIN Technical Services Interest Group - Orange Park (07/26/16) 

This month, we will meet in person and welcome Deborah Fritz of The Marc of Quality.  Deborah will offer the presentation, What's up with RDA, to update attendees on recent developments.   

"The MARC of Quality" (TMQ) was started in 1992 by Deborah and Richard Fritz, a pair of librarians who love cataloging and computers, respectively (i.e. one of us loves cataloging and the other loves computers;  both love libraries).

TMQ has a very narrow focus: to provide in-depth training that emphasises both MARC standards and  AACR rules; to provide MARC software that supports this training and consulting emphasis, and puts the batch processing power of the traditional vendor into the hands of the library; and to provide database services and consulting to support libraries that wish to follow these standards.

TMQ grew up in the TampaBay area, supporting the Tampa Bay Library Consortium with MARC Workshops and custom MARC software.  From there, our training expanded to cover the whole state of Florida; we developed a unique database processing software called OSMOSIS which makes it (nearly) painless for non-cataloging OCLC members to maintain updated holdings on WorldCat; and we released our MARC Review and MARC Global software, now used by libraries large and small throughout English-speaking the world.
