|Previous .xml will reference utf-16 encoding, and not include any style schema|
|Previous .xml will include extra white space, thus creating a new line in some cases. We've removed this to allow for ease of import via MarcEdit|
|We added some .xml schema specifications, and altered the UTF encoding from utf-16 to utf-8|
|We updated the 856 field and removed the white space causing a newline (error) in some cases|
1. "utf=16", changed to "utf=8"
2. Added - <... xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/
2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http:// www.loc.gov/MARC21/slim http:/ /www.loc.gov/standards/ marcxml/schema/MARC21slim.xsd" >
3. White space/Newline removed from 856 field
Batch Conversion of (Naxos) .xml to .mrcWe've also had folks inquire about the general process for "batch conversion of MARC .xml to .mrc. The process for that, as it pertains to the Naxos MARC .xml, is included below with screenshots.
While we at Naxos excel at many things, the use and intricacies of MarcEdit are not among them. If you have specific MarcEdit function questions, you are best served directing them to the appropriate party/parties.
In MarcEdit's "MARC Tools" module:
1. Click Tools, then Batch Process Records
This process may differ depending on the version of MarcEdit you have installed. For further information, consult the MarcEdit help section.
2. Find and select the folder that contains the entire .xml for import. In my example to the right, the file is titled "Small Sample".
Your filename will likely be "NML-MARC-XML-US" - or something very similar.
Lastly - be sure to enter ".xml", without the quotes, in the File Types box.
3. Select the function you're interested in having MarcEdit perform.
In our case, it's "MARCXML to MARC".
Once complete, your screen should look similar to the one to the left.
4. Viola! You should now see a folder titled "processed_files" in either your specified location, or within the previous folder selected.
If your conversion was successful, not only will you receive a confirmation from MarcEdit, but also the files should look similar to the right. Again, I used a small sub-section of the records for our purposes here.

Here's to many successful conversions!
