We have migrated this year from Geac Advance to Aleph and would like to seed the local subject and genre authority files as much as possible. Does anyone know if the RBMS vocabularies are available in MARC format? If not MARC, has anyone built MARC records from the RBMS lists for importing into a MARC environment?
We know that the Getty vocabularies are available for licensing and will look at that. Since Advance built local authority records, we have briefly discussed exporting the AAT terms we used locally for seeding the Aleph database, allowing catalogers to pull existing AAT terms into new records. Has anyone else done this sort of thing with any vocabulary? If so, in what ILS environment?
Thanks for any advice you can pass on.
