Bibliographic Services
eAthena’s team has extensive experience in library cataloguing and other bibliographic services. eAthena can retro-convert card catalogues to MARC21 using a framework in a XML environment. This framework is developed by the US Library of Congress and is available at http://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/ecbdhome.html.

The content of data elements in MARC records is defined by standards such as AACR (Anglo American Cataloguing rules), ISBD(G): General International Standard Bibliographic Description and others.
Apart from MARC, eAthena can convert Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS) which is a schema for a bibliographic element set that can be used for a variety of purposes, particularly library applications.
eAthena also has expertise in EAD (Encoding of Archival Descriptions).

A standard for describing collections held by archives and special collections, similar to the MARC standards for describing regular books. Such a standard enables museums, libraries, and manuscript repositories to list and describe their holdings in a manner that would be machine-readable and therefore easy to search, maintain, exchange.
