MARC export

Postby forsman » Thu Feb 05, 2009 2:22 am

I have looked but not found any information on export possibilities. Is there a plugin or someone who has tried to export records in Harvester2 to MARC format for import into another system?

Hi forsman,

The beta release (and forthcoming 2.3 release) will allow for redistribution of content via OAI Data Provider support (i.e. data can be harvested from the Harvester via OAI); it can provide data in its native format, and there is currently code in place to additionally allow conversions from MARC and MODS to DC using XSL stylesheets. Adding support to convert from other formats to MARC would require some coding (but not a lot). You'd have to find a good stylesheet to perform the conversion.

Asmecher, thank you for the fast response.
I will do a fresh install of the beta release and have a look. Thank you!
