Hi Clara, 

For these kind of lookups, fixes, merges, extractions, transformations, LibreCat's Catmandu has been my "got to" solution for MARC (and other bib / aut records formats) ETL,


given how versatile, the modules it incorporates, the possible sources and destinations (stores)... hope I properly understood your need.

If so, here are some Catmandu resources:

* Tutorial:  
* About Catmandu 1.20:  
* Fixes:  
* Cheat Sheet - 

Hope this helps! (and I am sure there are plenty of Catmandu experts here :) )

Subject: [CODE4LIB] Bulk Creation of MARC records: what to do with the 2nd indicator of field 245

Hi everyone,

I am bulk creating MARC records and looking for resources to help with the 2nd indicator of field 245.
I use python, but if there is a resource in another language, it would still be useful.

I have a basic dictionary of the articles in different languages, but there are challenges linked to context and added punctuation (A to Z, The ..., ... The ... ).

Thank you!
