I think I can safely make ur morning (nz time) and say that MARC and z39.50
compatibility is pretty close to the top of the wishlist.
I personally think that internal storage is irrelevant, ie we dont need to
store the records in MARC format. As long as we can import from and export
to MARC record format.
Now I could be completely wrong, but thats the beauty of having a mailing
list like this, im sure someone will tell me straight away if I am. :-)
Either way, I think I can say that consensus that we need some kind of MARC
compatibility has been reached. And Steve Tonnessen has already done some
thinking on how to achieve it.
Ok to conclude my rambling, I think what im trying to say is MARC and z39.50
compatibility is next on the list.
