jake2marc-0.3.6

Tagged:  

Mark wrote to oss4lib-list: "jake2marc is a utility that can create simple USMARC records for the full-text journals in databases listed in the jake project.

jake2marc is incorporated into and distributed with the standard jake application, and currently appears as a "Download as MARC" option in the database list and in the record for each database. jake2marc can also be installed and used separately from the main jake application because it queries jake for data over the net. The Perl source code is available for people interested in installing jake2marc on their own web server and modifying it to suit their own library's needs. jake2marc is currently under development and is available under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).

More information about jake2marc, including a detailed description of the records it creates, is available at www.lib.sfu.ca/kiosk/mjordan/jake/."
