MARCle (rhymes with “sparkle”) is a MARC editor for your Mac. MARCle lets you use your Mac to create, edit, import, and export bibliographic records in MARC 21 format. MARCle has several helpful features to make editing and managing MARC records easier and more fun: for example, see and edit fixed fields in natural language, use queries to find records quickly, and create transformations to make automatic changes to MARC records.
