marcrecord-js

marcrecord.js is a lightweight javascript library for working with MARC bibliographic data. It uses the MARC-JSON format externally, and allows mutation, inspection and html representation of MARC data.

> var marcjson = {
    leader: "01033cam a22003378a 4500",
    fields: [
        "001", "00001",
        "260", { ind1: "3", ind2: " ", subfields: [ "a", "Portland, Oregon", "c", "2014" ]
        },
        "100", { ind1: "3", ind2: " ", subfields: [ "a", "Anonymous" ]
        },
        "245", { ind1: "0", ind2: "2", subfields: [ "a", "A Title:", "b", "of sorts" ]
        },
        "355", { ind1: "0", ind2: " ", subfields: [ "a", "Confidential" ]
        },
        "355", { ind1: "5", ind2: " ", subfields: [ "a", "Unrestricted" ]
        }
    ]
