Abstract

The USMARC AMC format was developed for the control of archives and manuscripts. It is designed to organize and provide access to both bibliographic and internal collection management information. Today's USMARC AMC-supporting library bibliographic utilities and local system software focus on bibliographic aspects while support for managing internal administrative information is sorely underdeveloped. This article looks at the development of the NOTIS system as an example of one major AMC-supporting bibliographic system along with the functional requirements of archival information systems and general considerations when employing library utilities and software in archival management.
