Welcome to BestMARC, a centralized, online MARC record database.
BestMARC is the most complete collection of print, AV, professional & e-materials records in the business. Use BestMARC to create,
find or update MARC records.
Can’t find a record? With one mouse click, we can help. We integrate the results from z39.50 search technology with Smart Filter into those from the BestMARC database to offer you the best quality records available based on your
search criteria. Once you choose the record you want, edit or enhance it as you like. Use BestMARC’s Subject Explorer to search for
additional Sears, LOC and LCAC subject headings by dewey number, LC classification number or subject term. And our new RDA tool helps you easily add RDA fields to new or existing records.
BestMARC helps you maintain your MARC record database with built-in tips & examples, easy to use and customize templates, and online how-to tutorials to review and learn about the latest features.
To use BestMARC, you’ll need the latest version of Google
