I don't know whether to post this to the EAD or Perl Library group,
so I'm sending to both--I apologize for any duplicate postings.
I am preparing to work on a Perl script to convert an XML EAD finding
aid to the proper text format to import into MARCMakr, in the hopes
of generating a "plain vanilla" MARC record that our cataloger can
fine-tune. I have an existing script to convert SGML to HTML that I
am planning to adapt for this purpose. I am wondering, however,
whether a script to convert from EAD to text for MARCMakr may already
exist, which would save me the effort of (re)creating one.
Conversely, if such a script doesn't currently exist but would be
useful to others, this would also be good to know, and I could make
my script generally available when it is complete.
If anyone has any recommendations for me before I embark on this
endeavor, I would love to hear from you!
