ONIX to MARC 21 Mapping
Copyright (c) 2000 Library of Congress
Abstract: The following is a mapping between the 211 data elements in the ONIX International standard and data elements in the MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data. The ONIX International standard is intended to provide publishers with a means to share product and supplier information usable on the Internet. Work to develop the standard began in 1999 and culminated with the availability of Release 1.0 of ONIX in January 2000. ONIX is developed and maintained by EDItEUR, jointly with the Association of American Publishers, Book Industry Communication and Book Industry Study Group. ONIX Release 1.2 was made available December 1, 2000 and was used to establish these mappings to MARC 21. Please note that because ONIX is currently undergoing revisions, these documents will be updated in the future to reflect these changes.
