Abstract: A document that describes the procedure for converting bibliographic records created in CDS/ISIS into MARC21 format has been developed by Vimal Kumar of the Asian School of Business.

I just prepared a documentation for the migration of bibliographic records in CDS/ISIS to MARC-21 using MarcEdit software.

Many libraries are still using CDS/ISIS for record management and would like to convert their records to open source ILS like Koha.

This document focuses on the conversion of CDS/ISIS data to MARC-21 for Koha.

Migration from CDS/ISIS to MARC was not easy before. Certain useful scripts are now available for data migration between CDS/ISIS and Koha.

Such processes are highly technical and not affordable for the library professionals who are not tech savvy.

I hope that, this documentation will be helpful to convert your records from CDS/ISIS to Koha (ver. 3) open source ILS.

I extent my thanks to Mr. Sandeep Bhavsar, Librarian, Dr.V.N.Bedekar Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai, who inspired me to write this documentation.

I also extent my thanks to Mr. Amit Gupta, OSS Labs for editing this document.
