Hi Wolfgang

It is quite easy to convert data when exporting from CDS/ISIS.  You need to write a Field Selection Table saying where you want data moved from and to.  Please see the CDS/ISIS for Windows Handbook, section 10.7.  However, you won’t easily be able to produce details that are not there in your ISIS database (e.g. indicators and the 008 field).

Hi all!
We are currently looking into importing our ISIS dataset into koha. However, the ISIS database was designed using non-standard conventions fo the MARC21 fields, so we need a „conversion“ first.
I found out that Koha supports exporting the data into custom MARC formats, ist this also supported for importing (so e.g. can I create a definition of my format and import then directly into Koha)?

Thanks for any answers,
