USEMARCON - User-controlled Generic MARC Converter

"At the (national) libraries in the European Community about ten different standards of MARC formats are being used. The goal of the project is to develop a toolbox able of converting bibliographic records from any MARC format into any other format through a central conversion format: UseMARCON. For usage of the toolbox no programming experience will be required.

The objectives of the project are:

  • to produce a data-driven generic converter;
  • to enable the user, via a user-friendly interface, to define how the conversion is to take place between the source and the destination formats."
