Currently SLiMS doesn't support marc record yet. But, in the future we'll try to provide marc record import features. The thing about marc, its output is too complicated to transform into SLiMS format. We are open to any help in term of translating marc format into SLiMS :).

great news for you, martin. on the new release of SLiMS, which is soon, we made the facility to upload marc records. currently it only upload marc data within the form of .mrc or modsxml. well, i hope this will be a great news for you. to try it out the-still-beta-version of SLiMS 5, you can download it from slims github repository at github.com/slims :).
