MARC to Dublin Core Converter

MARC::Crosswalk::DublinCore is now available on CPAN.

It includes methods to convert MARC records to both simple and qualified Dublin Core. Future plans include doing a reverse crosswalk (DC->MARC) and having the sample program (marc2dc) return DC/XML output rather than an ad-hoc text format.

There are other tools for this task, MarcEdit for example. It is nice to have a choice and find the best one for the work needed.
