MARC RTP

A while back I posted that the MARC Record Translation Program (MARC RTP) had disappeared. Now it is back, though at a temporary home.
MARC RTP was especially developed so that catalogue data contained in MARC format files could be converted, and selectively imported, into databases built with general-purpose applications.

....

RTP allows you to select any part or parts of each MARC record, therefore you do not have to design a large unnecessarily complicated database. You need only include the data that is of interest to you. As an aid, RTP can produce a readable listing of all of the records from the MARC file, and information about which tags and fields exist in your MARC records.
