Bibliographic character sets

This is a collection of bibliographic character sets implemented in Java.

These character sets have not been included in the standard Java distribution. Most of the character sets predate Unicode and are dormant now but are still in active use in library application system software.

The reason to provide these character sets is to assist the public in migrating library data to Unicode, and UTF-8, respectively.
