Hi all,

We're trying to figure out the fastest way to generate stub resource records in 
ASpace from MARC XML for about 300 collections. The MARC XML we get from our 
Sierra OPAC creates really messy resource records using the MARC import 
function baked into ASpace, so while we could do that and spend our time on 
clean-up after ingest, I feel like there must be a way to convert the MARC XML 
into clean JSON in bulk (maybe with a CSV intermediary step?) and then import 
via the API. Before I go too far down the "I'll just do it all myself" route, 
has anyone done this before and could share workflows or scripts? Or gently 
tell me why this won't work?

I'm aware of this from Smith: 
and the API 
 from Atlas, the official API 
wiki<https://archivesspace.github.io/archivesspace/api/> and its sample 
scripts, and various blog posts/guides for ArchivesSnake and PyMARC.

Other suggestions?

Thank you!
