Staff at our database hosts MIMAS have prepared and released an interim version of the CURL database that includes MARC21 records, and this is now accessible via Z39.50. (Telnet access will continue to be to the UKMARC database only). No changes to Z39.50 setup or commands will be needed in order to access the Interim database; and anyone using Z39.50 to obtain UKMARC records will find the Interim database exactly the same as the current UKMARC database. See MARC21 project for further information.
