  1. downloaded UTF8 format MARC records: https://www.loc.gov/cds/products/MDSConnect-music.html

  2. converted UTF8 files into json dictionaries using readmarc_1.py and readmarc_2.py

  3. found records cataloged as Rap (Music) in sound disc format via post_sift.py and post_sift2.py, creating a new json dictionary to hold the results

  4. combined rap_results via combine_json.py

BONUS CODES!!!

  1. readLOC_jsonM.py looks at tag data with a count greater than 100 and cleans up extraneous tags like "sigh another album from my not dissipated enough youth"

  2. note_test.py looks at the amount of times hip-hop is used in the note field (as was suggested to be more inclusive of the term in MARC records w/out using LCSH)
