Dear Beth,

information about the import & export functionality in DSpace is available at:

What data format or markup is your online catalog using ? Normally, with some XSLT programming, scripts can be created that transform structured types of information into the required XML format.

Likewise, when using the exporter, you will need some scripts that convert the xml back to the required catalog format.

We worked with a broad range of input data, including spreadsheets, endnote, reference manager, or ASCII formats from legacy dos systems. Although some problems can arise related to character encoding, it should be possible in most cases to create the necessary transformation scripts.

with best regards,

Bram Luyten

Can anyone point me to the information I need to be able to import
bibliographic records from our Voyager online catalog into our
repository? Down the line I would also like to be able do the
reverse, and upload records created in our repository into Voyager.

Thanks in advance for your help.
