The MARCcat subgroup will work with developers to outline functional requirements for the FOLIO MARCcat application. Overall scope is to implement the Italian company @Cult's WeCat cataloguing module into the FOLIO environment as the MARCcat app. For V1 the highest priority will be on create bibliographic records in MARC21, and holdings in MFHD, and implement search features on all data in the MARC record. This workflow ties into the interaction with the MARC Batch Loader, the generic bib storage, and instance and holdings records in Inventory. The MARCcat is in the domain of the MM SIG, and is especially important to cataloging. The subgroup will act under the auspices of the MM SIG.
