Library Master
Standard Import Sources

Library Master for Windows comes with predefined Import Filters to import from hundreds of databases, bibliographic CD-ROMs, online services and library catalogs. In addition to these sources, most database and spreadsheet programs can export records in comma delimited or Dbase files, which can then be imported to Library Master. Most of these sources can be imported with Import Filters provided with Library Master. In a few instances, the Data Magician is used to import the records to Library Master.

It is also possible to modify these filters and to create new ones to import information from almost any other source.
