A mapping between the 211 data elements in the ONIX International standard
and data elements in the MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data is now
available at: http://www.loc.gov/marc/onix2mrc.html.
The ONIX International standard is intended to provide publishers with a
means to share product and supplier information usable on the
Internet. Work to develop the standard began in 1999 and culminated with
the availability of Release 1.0 of ONIX in January 2000. ONIX Release 1.1
was made available July 27, 2000 and was used to establish the
mapping to MARC 21.
The mapping also includes a detailed MARC 21 Record Builder.
