Linked Data is about modeling the real world, the abstract concepts and physical things and relationships between them, not about modeling MARC structures. Books exist independently of how they are coded in legacy systems or how data about them is accessible. MARC can serve as input that can be transformed to Linked Data descriptions, but it cannot impose its structure on the real world.

Read something about SPARQL and OWL and HTTP, please.
