Have you tried MARCPlug for converting your records to Dublin Core?

It works well with MARC21 ;  I don't know how well is plays with UNIMARC but you can configure the conversion to Dublin Core by modifying marctodc.txt in the /etc/ folder (the perl code that does the hard work is located in $GSDLHOME/perllib/cpan/MARC/)

If you can get it to import then you should be able to use the GLI to add further metadata.

Let us know how you go - there are a lot of UNIMARC users out there, and I'm sure others would benefit from your experiences.

hi everyone.
Happy new year.
This is what i am trying to do:
I have unimarc records as one string in a text file. I want to convert it to dublincore recored as one string in a text file. After this conversion i want to create a metadata.xml file for each record. The purpose for this is to use the import process to add the metadata in a new collection.
1) how can i convert the unimarc records to dublincore.
2) how can i create the metadata.xml for each record from the dublincore records.

note: there is already a CPAN module: MARC-Crosswalk-DublinCore-0.02 that converts a usmarc record to a dublincore. I am thinking to modify it for unimarc.
Thank you.
