I have finally completed a multiple record MARC Record Viewer. This has been rather long in the making but is essentially a quick and practical tool for looking at and assessing MARC records without having to load them into specialist software like MARCEdit or an LMS. It is essentially the same as the viewer built for my Codecademy project except that:
- It reads multiple records in one file, rather than just one, and provides a count.
- It has an input box so the records don’t have to be hard-coded into the script.
Some example .mrc records of varying lengths can be found here.
Thank you to those who have already have a shufti at earlier versions of this, especially on different browsers, and provided feedback! Please do let me know if you have any comments on this, suggestions for improvements, or if you come across errors. I have some ideas for improvements, mainly for making user input easier, and offering different formatting of results. I hope to start using JQuery for these too, and perhaps a later conversion of the whole thing would be in order.
