Crosswalk: DC/ GEM to MARC

The DC/ GEM metadata standards are used to represent a set of bibliographic data for educational resources, developed by the Gateway to Educational Materials Project, ERIC Clearinghouse on Information & Technology, Syracuse University.

The MARC format is used to represent a set of bibliographic data in machine-readable form.

The following table was prepared by I-Chene Tai, Technical Services Librarian, Falcone Library, Le Moyne College.
