Java wrapper for the Library of Congress marc2bibframe (version1) conversion utility.This utility allows running the marc2bibframe utility on large batches of records at a time. Internally, records are processed one at a time and a conversion error in a single record will not stop the whole conversion. Errors are logged in an XML log file that also includes the MARCXML data of problematic records.Java
