Bulkmarcimport.pl can ingest both MARCXML and binary MARC (ISO2709, typically the .mrc extension).  It defaults to ISO2709, but you can add " -m MARCMXL" to the call to change that.

Subject: [Koha] quick question re: bulkmarcimport

As ever, I am struggling with the migration of my marc data.  Yet, I persist.  I am trying bulkmarcimport for the, oh, fortieth time... and it seems it wants an XML file, not my marc (.mrc) file.  Does this sound right?  I thought I would ask before I risk messing up the database.
I used MarcEdit to convert my .mrc file to Marc21XML.
I am running Koha 3.0.
Thanks so much,
