Looks to me at a cursory glance that at least one Endeca implementation is still drawing on MaRC data:
...even if not directly using MaRC for search:
MaRC is simply the widest-used library standard. If you could get hold of ONIX (2.1 or 3.0) feeds, you could in theory build an LMS around that instead, or any other data format you prefer.
There is at least a fair amount of interest on interoperating at least these 2 major formats:

Subject: [CODE4LIB] NON-MARC ILS?
Is there a full-featured ILS that is not based on MARC records?
I know we love complexity, but it seems to me that my public library and its library network and maybe even every public library could probably do without 95% of MARC Fields and encoding, streamline workflows and save $ if there were a simpler standard.
Is this what an Endeca-based system is about, or do those rare birds also use MARC in the background?
Forgive me if the question has been hashed and rehashed over the years...
