Subject: Re: [Humanist] 33.196: a conversion tool? "MARCMaker accepts files from most text editors and word processors (e.g., WordPerfect) and converts information to the MARC record structure. The program requires only that bibliographic data bepresented a certain way so that the correct MARC structure and data separators (e.g., delimiters) can be generated. The interpretation by MARCMaker of explicit flags in the source data is how the proper MARC record structure is generated. MARCMaker is very flexible. Anyone with access to even the simplest of computers can create source cataloging records that can be transformed into structurally sound MARC records. The companion program MARCBreaker can be used to take a file of MARC records and convert them into a text file configured the way MARCMaker requires."

My problem: I have a bibliography of several hundred sources as a vintage MS Word file built without the Manage Sources feature of recent versions of MS Word. I would like to mass import these sources into MS Word or Zotero in order to expand the list and re-format the entries according to different citation styles. Do you know of a handy desktop tool or work-flow to convert between a simple text file of the sources and the MS Word Master List or a Zotero database file? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
