4

10
11 PACKAGE NEEDED :
12 ---------
13 Update your MARC::Record to get the latest version (1.26).
14 Koha won't work with old versions, and bulkmarcimport.pl need MARC::Batch.pm, whichi is recent.
15 MARC::Record 1.25 works to, but reports hundred of warnings in error_log. pls upgrage to 1.26 !
16
17
18 DB modifications :
19 ---------
20 * the marc_breeding table has been modified. A row "encoding" varchar(40) has been added. It's used to manage character encoding.
21 * the z3950_servers table has been modified. A row "syntax" varchar(40) has been added. It's used to manage character encoding.
22
23 z3950 :
24 ---------
25 * the z3950 script in admin part of Koha has been fixed and can be used and translated.
26 * z3950 cataloguing : when you reach the MARC-cataloguing screen, a new link appear : z3950 search.
27 * If you click on this link, a popup appears, and the search begins. The window is refreshed every 2 seconds, until all servers answered.
28 * The avaible records are shown in the popup. Click on the one you want, and... the popup closes and the biblio is copied in the cataloguing screen.
29
30 This works ONLY IF the z3950 daemon is launched. It's located at $kohadir/scripts/z3950daemon/
31 * MODIFY the scripts to fit you directory structure.
32 * Warning : due to a small bug, processqueue is in $kohadir/cgi-bin/z3950/ directory, not in the script one.
33 * Start daemon in a non-X shell, or launch processqueue in a shell, and KEEP IT OPEN.
34
35 iso2709 file import :
36 ---------
37 This tools is very important and was waiting by libraries that plans to migrate from a previous ILS.
38 VERY IMPORTANT :
39 BEFORE using this script, take care of your MARC parameters, and check them twice. If they are wrong, you will get wrong results...
40
41 It's located (in CVS tree) at $koharoot/misc/bulkmarcimport.pl
42
43 It loads an iso2709 file into the ACTIVE Database. My 1st tests on sample files shows it works quite fine.
44 Feel free to try it.
45 How it works ? enter ./bulkmarcimport in a console, and look.
46
47 KNOWN LIMIT : If the barcode of an item does not exists, the scripts report an SQL error, and continue. BUT the corresponding item is not in the non-marc db, so it can't be requested or loaned.
48
49 sample file :
50 ---------
51 The sample file has been removed from this release, as it's buggy (no MARC datas, making it quite useless)
52
53 Templates & translations :
54 ---------
55 * Most images have been dropped from templates (all -except bugs- in french templates
56 * english is uptodate, and french should be too.
57
