MABMaschinelles Austauschformat für Bibliotheken is the acronym for "Maschinelles Austauschformat für Bibliotheken" which can be translated as Automated Library Exchange Format. It is a metadata format enabling "libraries to exchange all data generated within the library context: bibliographic, authority and local data" [1].

The current format version (MAB2) has been introduced in 1995; a corresponding XMLExtensible Markup Language structure (MABxmlMaschinelles Austauschformat für Bibliotheken[2]) is available since 2003.

The record structure of MAB2 is defined by NISONational Information Standards Organization standard Z39.2-1994 [3]. Each record starts with a fixed leader of 24 bytes. In the subsequent content, the element is defined by a 3-digit tag (e.g. 331 for the title) and an optional indicator (e.g. 100b for the first contributor). The tag is followed by the corresponding value.
