Thanks for these replies. We've been using MarcEdit (and Notepad++.) What
I'd like to find is a software that can take an XML file of a MARC format
catalog record and show it without coding, like an end-user sees in an
online public access catalog.
For example, MarcEdit shows for the 700 field like this:
What I'd like to find would show the 700 field like this (from the same
into as above):
*[007/00] Category of material:* Sound recording
*[**007/01] Specific material designation:* Sound disc
*[**007/03] Speed:* Other
*[**007/04] Configuration of playback channels:* Monaural
*[007/05] Groove width/groove pitch:* Coarse/standard
*[007/06] Dimensions:* 10 in. diameter
*[007/07] Tape width:* Not applicable
*[007/08] Tape Configuration:* Not applicable
*[007/09] Kind of disc, cylinder or tape:* Disc master (negative)
*[007/10] Kind of material:* Metal
*[007/11] Kind of cutting:* Hill-and-dale cutting
*[007/12] Special playback characteristics:* Not applicable
*[007/13] Capture and storage technique:* Acoustical capture, direct
There used to be a software called Minaret, which allowed me to program the
view of MARC records, but it's no longer available.
