Thank you so much Randy. You have answered my question. I have heard

            IMHO, the first question is what open source package will
        you convert to?
            The standard for library data is a format called MARC.  If
        commercial package handles MARC exports an open source package
        like Koha 
        <http://www.koha.org> can easily import the data.
