Steps to export your LW data to MARC21 for import into Koha.
LibraryWorld (LW) is a hosted (SaaS) proprietary integrated Library system developed and promoted by San Jose, California based Libraryworld Inc. According to their website they charge USD 495 annually for a hosted instance of LW. So earlier in the day when Mr. Sonam Rinzee from Bhutan requested for some help in exporting his library’s catalog data, it presented the perfect opportunity for L2C2 Technologies to tinker with something new. These screenshots describe how it was done.
Step #1 : Access the LW website
Step #2 : Login into the admin dashboard
Step #3 : Go to Catalog module and click on “Advanced”
Step #4 : Use the search filter like this
Step #5 : Export the records
Step #6 : Export as MARC using the export button
Step #7 : Wait for your export to be ready. Click on “refresh” link to see if it is “done”
Step #8 : Download the exported data by clicking on “FILE” link and change file extension to “.mrc”
Step #9 : Open the file using MarcEdit and convert it to .mrk for edit work
Step #10 : Now curate, remap and edit the data in a batch for making it import ready into Koha
