Barry:
   I would start with the GENERAL RECORD STRUCTURE of MARC 21 records at:

http://lcweb.loc.gov/marc/specifications/specrecstruc.html#genrec
from the LIBRARY OF CONGRESS web page on MARC21 specifications for
record structure...

You need to be aware that the display of the MARC records on your
screen is NOT how the records are stored and exported/imported
to/from different systems.
