SVS2BIX

Purpose: Convert OCLC (Prism) save-screens for import to BIBL
Version: 1.1
Date: 4 October 1991

SVS2BIX, a BIBL utility program, converts OCLC (PRISM) save-screens for
use with BIBL -- the personal library/bibliography system.

The following processing occurs during conversion from SVS to BIX:


SVS file BIBL field

OCLC# Note
100 tag Author

110 tag Author. If length of 100 tag
and 110 combined are less than 70
characters, they are joined and
separated by a ';'. If longer
than 70 chars, 100 is first line
of author field in BIBL record,
110 is second.

700 tag Author.

710 tag If no 100, 110 or 700 exists, it
moves to author, otherwise to note

740 tag Note

245 tag Title. Word wrap is used to try to
get as much as possible into the three
lines BIBL reserves for title.

260 tag Publisher

300 tag Publisher (2nd line)

504 tag Note

650 tag (1st occurrence) The main heading (anything before a
subdivision) is moved to SUBJECT

650 tag (2nd occurrence) Descriptor. Terms are reformatted
to conform to BIBL's keyword
indexing of this field (e.g., multi-
word terms are hyphenated).

690 tag Descriptor. All terms will make
if if no 2nd 650 tag occurs. Otherwise
as many words a possible will be
added from 690 to those already in
descriptor field from second 650.


Once SVS2BIX is finished, you'll have a BIX file that you can import
into a BIBL record. Here's a quick guide to reading your BIX file
into BIBL.

1. Copy the *.BIX file to your C:\BIBL subdirectory (or wherever BIBL.EXE
resides).
1. Activate BIBL.
2. If you want to read the BIX file into a existing database, select that
file as your active database.
If you want to create a new database and read the BIX info into it,
select MAKE A DATABASE on the maintenance menu, then assign it a
name. Then return to the main menu and select the new database you
just created.
3. Select M (for Maintenance) on the Main menu, then press A for ASCII
import. Select the BIX file from the pick list that displays. BIBL
will read these records into your file then reindex the database.

That's it.
