MARC::Detrans::Names - A set of non-standard authority mappings
use MARC::Detrans::Names my $names = MARC::Detrans::Names->new(); $names->addName( from => '$aNicholas $bI, $cEmperor of Russia, $d1796-1855', to => '$a^[(NnIKOLAJ^[s, $bI, $c^[(NiMPERATOR^[s ^[(NwSEROSSIJSKIJ^[s, $d1796-1855' );
Often times personal names are transliterated in non-standard ways, so in order to get back to the original script it's necessary to have non-standard mappings. MARC::Detrans::Names allows you to map the transliterated name back to it's original.
You must pass in a MARC::Detrans::Name object that you want to have added to the names mapping.
Pass in a MARC::Field object and you'll get back an array ref of modified subfield data which could be used to create a new field. If there is no mapping for a particular MARC::Field then you'll get back undef.
