Doesn't Connexion accept MarcXML and DC as well?

Just curious.

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.

Be aware that there are still some mapping issues with ASpace elements and MARC fields, so you definitely have to do some manual editing.

Hope this helps,

Good afternoon AS Users,

We have records in AS that we would like to export and put into OCLC and our catalog.

Has anyone exported a marcxml record and then imported it into OCLC and/or their catalog?

If so, do you have instructions or a workflow?

I am not a cataloger so excuse me if I am not using the correct terminology J

Have a wonderful weekend!
