Hello Collective Wisdom,

Is anyone an OCLC Connexion user that also happens to use Mac OS X? We're a
Mac school (♥︎) and the desktop client only runs on Windows. But we
learned today that the website's export function, which worked fine with
our prior ILS Millennium, only exports records in MARC8 encoding and not
UTF-8, so Koha doesn't work with it.

All our work around options look bleak: using something like WINE to run
the client on a Mac, asking our staff to dual boot or run a VM, exporting
to a file instead & importing that into Koha. They'll work but they're much
more inconvenient than the web client. If anyone has a better idea I'd be
