Description Pablo AB 2013-09-24 15:07:48 UTC
Sometimes catalogers want Concise MARC 21 LOC manual, while cataloging on any framework, so the "?" help link point to http://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/concise/bd100.html​ instead of http://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/bd100.html.

To solve this, I propose a syspref to switch between Hide/Show Full manual/Show Concise manual, something like DocumentationOnMARCeditor.

I'm pretty sure http://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/concise/ are all available MARC21 fields on Concise manual. PopupMARCFieldDoc JavaScript on marcdocs HTML class might be modified.

On a second step, is useful to select between languages, but AFAIK LOC doesn't give a good support or API (PDF only for Spanish or German, for eg).
