What I can only suggest is to follow the format but not the standard, for
example use requiered fields 100, 245, 260, 500, 630, 650 for authorm title,
publisher, notes, and subjects respectively, it is because phpmylibrary
searches only on this fields. thus you can use use any other tags you like
provided you must have at least title, author fields(100, 245) to make your
collection searchable. Also just use this simple format 100 00$aAnything
You should follow that $a thing becuase the phpmylibrary strips the first 4
characters of the entry you encoded thus if you only make it like this 100
Anything goes here!!! your output will look like this
Author: hing goes here!!!
I hope you get the format. You can freely disregard the MARC standard but
not the format. just simply add 00$a in every entry. then make sure you have
100, 245 used fields for author and title.
100 00$aAuthor\-Surname, Author_firstName
260 00$aIf_you_want_to_include_the_publisher_like_Princeton Press: 1900
630 00$aIf_you_want_to_provide related term to your book
