[Koha] Migrating data from ABCD to Koha

Hello Admire,

Koha stores the data in MARC format, either MARC21 or UNIMARC, so you need to convert the data to that format in order to import it into Koha.

There is a free tool called MarcEdit that can help with this, it is available here: http://people.oregonstate.edu/~reeset/marcedit/html/index.php .

Hope that helps.

Subject: [Koha] Migrating data from ABCD to Koha


There is an institution in Zimbabwe that have been using ABCD but are having challenges with the system. They are now contemplating going the koha root. However, they want their  bibliographic records to be migrated to Koha. They are saying they are not using  MARC format in their ABCD. Any idea on how to do the migration.
