Characters are garbled when trying to import record through the Z39.50 Connection into Connexion Client

  • Diacritic Characters are garbled when I try to import records through the Z39.50 Connection into Connexion Client. 
Applies to
  • Connexion Client

Short introduction or instructions to follow these steps:

  1. The Z39.50 connection only supports the MARC record format. It does not support the UTF-8 character diacritics.
  2. Change your workflow to where it is not using the Z39.50 connection.
  3. Export the records into a file from the source
  4. Import the file into Connexion Client making sure the UTF-8 record characteristics is selected.
  5. The records should now be in your Connexion Client with the UTF-8 diacritics.
