Providing JAPAN/MARC in MARC21 format

The National Diet Library, Japan (NDL), adopts the MARC21 format for the JAPAN/MARC, a machine-readable form of the Japanese National Bibliography, from January 2012. At the same time, the NDL shifts character set for bibliographic records to Unicode for international use.

From January 2012, it is also possible to download JAPAN/MARC bibliographic records in MARC21 format through the NDL-OPAC.
