MARC Record to JSON Converter

This tool allows you to convert your MARC records into JSON format, which is compatible with most modern APIs and other thingamabobers. Don’t have a MARC record handy? You can try it out with this one (just copy the text in the typewriter font).

Need something like this?

I’d be happy to work with you to customize this for your needs. We could do batch uploads, other kinds of outputs, maybe switch out the field numbers in the MARC data for actual meaningful field names. Reach out.

What’chu talking bout?

JSON stands for javascript standard object notation. If you’re not familiar with it, you can see an example of JSON here.

You can learn more about MARC Records from the Library of Congress Understanding MARC page.
