The UNIMARC and MARC21 manual in XML: automating validation, explanation and help systems for bibliographic records.
In 2004 BookMARC created a prototype of a XML version of the UNIMARC manual along with software tools that used it for validation and explanation purposes. This project was commissioned by ILFA's UNIMARC program, currently located at the National Library of Lisbon, Portugal. The purpose of this work is to provide the UNIMARC community with a formal representation of UNIMARC rules and associated vocabularies. The resulting product has wide application in validation routines and the construction of help systems for cataloguing modules. A presentation is available in pdf format here.
The package that comprehends the prototype XML that can express the semantic rules of MARC records comprises the following materials:
For a similar package for MARC21 see http://www.bookmarc.pt/documentation/marcdoc.html
The TVS page provides examples of XML schema for the transport and validation of MARC records and examples of source code to consume bibliographic web services provided by BookMARC.
