This web site extracts data from MARC records, creating Encoded Archival Context-Corporate Bodies, Persons, and Families (EAC-CPF) XML. EAC-CPF standardizes descriptions of people and groups who are documented in archival records. Basically, you upload MARC, and this web site will create EAC-CPF which you may view or download. This is intended to be a gentle introduction to creating EAC-CPF from MARC.

Supported MARC formats are .mrc and MARC21/slim .xml.
