Matt,

Could we use this to take Hampshire's stuff out (or even put it in I
suppose)?

Bill

> Subject: XMLMARC Software Released
>
> Lane Medical Library at Stanford University released XMLMARC software on
> Dec. 29, 1999, for free, non-commercial use.  This Java client/server
> program converts MARC to XML based on flexible maps and simplified, yet
> detailed DTDs for bibliographic and authorities formats.  It resulted from
> the experimental Medlane Project, which is exploring alternative methods
> of
> utilizing cataloging information-- considered at risk due to its
> segregation from mainstream web resources.
>
> XMLMARC was designed to accommodate changes in MARC and mapping decisions
> without the need for reprogramming.  Lane has used the program to convert
> over 250,000 MARC records to XML.  Details and downloading instructions
> are
> available at:  http://xmlmarc.stanford.edu/
>
> This release concluded Phase I of the Project.  We are now exploring
> access
> to our XML data via search engines/Oracle 8i, display using XSL style
> sheets, and interface development.
>
> We hope that the availability of XMLMARC will spark further exploration of
> the potential of using XML for a web-oriented version of MARC.
