From a good article on this at
$ yaz-marcdump -f marc-8 -t utf-8 -o marc -l 9=97 part01.dat > part.mrc
(97 = 'a')
If I remember correctly some of this functionality has also changed
over various versions so not sure if this is still needed, but better
safe than sorry. Might also want to check the man page with your
particular version of yaz-marcdump.

> Does the -t flag in yaz-marcdump tell the program to convert characters in MARC records to specific character sets, or does merely change the value in a MARC leader to denote the character set of the record as a whole? In other words, will yaz-marcdump do its best to convert MARC-8 characters found in MARC records into a UTF-8 characters?
