Description: The Marc XX system (Machine Readable Catalog) was developed by a group of librarians in order to establish a standard form for computerized catalog systems. Through a grant from the History Committee of the American Library Association, we conducted interviews with nine people who created the system. The development of the system was one of the most important innovations in librarianship in this century. The interviews are open and available for consultation here and at the Library of Congress. J.E. Fall conducted the interviews.
