The Ministere de la culture et de la communication (France), Board of Research and Technology (http://www.culture.fr), is pleased to announce the first public release of "BiblioML", an XML application for the representation of bibliographic records. The BiblioML DTD is based on the international standard "Unimarc Bibliographic Format" (http://www.ifla.org/VI/3/p1996-1/sec-uni.htm), which can handle the description of all types of documents. The current release of BiblioML handles monographs and serials.
Also available from the project BiblioML, a Java/XSLT application to convert Unimarc records to BiblioML documents, with an example database of more than 6000 records. This application can be downloaded and used for free.
The BiblioML application is still in active development. Future releases will bring complete Unimarc support, better conversion tools, support for the Unimarc Authorities, and also DTD profiles for the markup of simple bibliographic records within other XML documents.
