Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the e-mail. I am using a windows installation and Greg from Australia has send me instructions on how to import some test data which I downloaded from the library of congress.

Everything is working fine now.

Kind Regards,

Luke - I believe you are reading outdated documentation. Please let me know where you found this so I can be sure to update it.

Currently, VuFind only imports binary Marc21 records. To so, you can run the import.sh script at the command line.

Dear All,

I have downloaded a few marc records from the library of congress to load into vufind.

I have managed to create an xml file using YAZ but cannot find the import php file.

According to the installation instructions:

Copy the MarcXML file into the import directory and make sure it is named catalog.xml.
Then simply run the import/import-solr.php script from the command line:
%> php import-solr.php

I am unable to find any file called import-solr.php.

Kind regards,
