One thought on “MarcEdit Mac Updates

  1. Hi Terry,

    I am using the “Harvest OAI records” function to get my data..

    Two questions :

    It seems like there is a hard-set limit of a maximum number of records it can harvest in one go. It always stops at 3995 records processed. Is there a way to increase this ?

    Once the data shows up how can I convert it to some kind of delimited format so that my users can use Excel ?

    Thanks a lot.
