Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] Do you have Project Gutenberg (or other public domain e-books) MARC Records in your OPAC?
Matt, there are about a million public domain ebooks in the Open
Library and I have been trying to come up with a way to export MARC
records with the URLs. It's tricky, but only because some scripting
needs to be done. If anyone here has extracted the ebook records or
who would like to help out so we can do this, please let me know. I'm
happy to provide code-like specs for the steps that need to be taken.
