MARC module for Drupal 5

Drupal, an open-source CMS, now has a MARC module.
This module provides a way to map data in the MARC record to Drupal content types and import sets of MARC records.

The module currently supports mapping to the default node fields, taxonomy fields and CCK text fields.

Why
By importing a library's MARC records directly in to Drupal as nodes, you can easily recreate your library's catalog in a rich social environment.
