Kevin, Eric

7zip worked fine to unzip and records look pretty good since they used 653
and preserved the string from the metadata element with the hypens.
 However the records do not do subfield "d" in 100 or 700 fields and thus
such content appears in the 245$c.  245$a seems to go missing with some
frequency.  MarcEdit does not report any errors though.

My original intent was just to keep my XSLT skills sharp while I had some
free time last August.  After creating the stylesheet, I then had no free
time until January when I could devote 2 or 3 hours to the post transform
editing.  Thought I'd just dive in but the pool was much deeper than I had
anticipated.

Do think libraries will prefer my edited versions although different in
non-access points as well.  Incidentally, not many additions since my
harvest.

First record in the Project Gutenberg produced records:
