    I don't get it. I've been trying to find a way to get MARC data into my Bibtex library without success. I've tried almost any script that I could get hold of but it seems all the libraries I'm using are not compatible... For example the Basel, or Edinburgh libs. Whats wrong with their data output? Could someone hint me into the right direction how to process their data?
    I gave up on something direct MARC to Bibtex and now try to get something that processes to MODS which hopefully can be converted via xml2bib.pl.
    Here are the ibraries: http://aleph.unibas.ch/ and http://catalogue.lib.ed.ac.uk/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?DB=local&PAGE=First
    Maybe someone could check that out? I'd be very grateful.
    Bernd.

      I'm not sure what your question is. The marcpm sf project doesn't have any explicit support for bibtex. You might want to try posting to the perl4lib or code4lib lists to see if anyone on there has any experience doing this.
