An FYI for Perl people: there is a new CPAN <http://www.cpan.org> module
available for reading, manipulating and converting MARC records--and one of the
conversions available is from MARC->XML. The documentation and download location
are available at
<http://libstaff.lib.odu.edu/depts/systems/iii/scripts/MARCpm/>.

Initially I tried using LC's programs for converting MARC records to SGML but I
got into a bit of a mess when I tried to convert the SGML to XML. I think this
was because I didn't understand the DTD properly. However, as we all know XML
doesn't *require* a DTD; so if you like Perl and need to convert from MARC to
XML you might want to take a look at MARC.pm.

And for non-Perl people there is a web interface to MARC.pm available at
<http://libstaff.lib.odu.edu/cgi-bin/marc.cgi> where you can upload a single
record or batch of records and get an XML representation of them sent back to
you. If you go to the site with IE5.0 the XML will be displayed (sans
stylesheet), and if you go with Netscape the XML will be sent back to you as a
file to download.

This is kind of a shameless plug I suppose since I am one of the five authors of
MARC.pm, but we would certainly welcome any feedback or ideas you might have for
improvement on the module--especially the manner in which we encoded the XML.
One known problem is the conversion of MARC characters into Unicode. Attached
below is a sample XML record that was generated using MARC.pm

Subject: MARC ==> EAD

Back in June this year there was some discussion on this list of converting
MARC records to SGML format using scripts available from the LC MARC SGML
site http://lcweb.loc.gov/marc/marcsgml.html and then using the
transformation capabilities of XSL to convert them from MARC DTD to EAD DTD.
Michael Fox mentioned that such techniques would be discussed in the EAD
Application Guidelines (which I haven't read yet).

What I need to know is where I can find a document which explicitly maps
MARC fields/sub-fields to EAD elements.  Is there an "official" mapping that
I am overlooking, or are people just developing their own mappings for their
own projects?  If the latter, is anyone willing to share the fruits of their
labour?

I'd be grateful for any advice.
