Abstract

We are still working to get our Special Collections library finding aids and tools online and publicly accessible. For example, we have several MS Access databases that just list the call numbers and titles for collections and we have a couple hundred EADs created in a retrospective project that do not have MARC records. This presentation will demonstrate how MarcEdit’s Delimited Text Translator was used to transform a MS Access database listing KU’s basketball film collection into MARC for loading into Voyager. In addition, I will demonstrate how we are using MarcEdit’s XML conversion tool to convert EADs into MARC and load into OCLC.
