As noted in the thread below, there are “issues” – at a glance, quite a few. I’m aware that some issues are registered in JIRA (e.g., AR-1189, AR-1187, …). The goal would be to draft a document that comprehensively and precisely documents how AS should map to MARC, for all AS “Resource” fields.

> Hi Johna,
> I do it all the time.  You can export a resource record as MARCXML.  You do it through the Export tab in the top level of the resource record.  I do use OCLC Connexion to catalog, so if that’s what you want to do you have to transform the xml file into MARC21 format.  Terry Reese’s MarcEdit program (free) will allow you to do that.  Then you can just import the transformed MARC record into Connexion.
