Yes, the MARC processing library is ruby-marc , which needs to be installed: gem install marc > I did not find the MYSQL database/databases? you designed. The schema is defined in: http://inkdroid.org/bzr/berman/db/schema.rb and can be invoked by doing a: rake db:schema:load This is all pretty standard Rails stuff, for anyone who likes that web framework. As for Karen's question about the Internet Archive: it totally makes sense to host the data up there. But, I had to sign a scary license agreement from the UIUC Archives, which *almost* stopped me from even releasing http://catalog.sanfordberman.org ... Madeline can say for sure, but I'm fairly certain this license prevents putting the data up for the public. The ultimate disservice to Sanford Berman IMHO. /me sighs //Ed
