MicroMARCamc, a USMARC AMC Format MicrocomputerBased Local System for the Description and Management of Archival Records, Manuscript Collections, and Related Materials, was developed as both an alternative to the online bibliographic databases and as a complementary system. For many archives, historical societies, and other repositories that have archival materials, subscribing to OCLC or the Research Libraries Group is not practical for many reasons. For these libraries, a standalone local system that can interface with other systems using the MARC AMC format, e.g., OCLC, can be extremely useful. Such a system can be used to create the bibliographic record and as an automated system used to manage the repository's holdings.
