MARC::Charset allows you to turn MARC-8 encoded strings into UTF-8
MARC-8 is a single byte character encoding that predates unicode, and
allows you to put non-Roman scripts in MARC bibliographic records.
The MARC21 standard now supports encoding character data in Unicode,
specifically the UCS Transformation Formats-8 (UTF-8).  Unicode
notwithstanding, libraries still have a wealth of data encoded using
MARC-8. Yet, some new data formats such as XML require that characters are
encoded using Unicode. In order to facilitate conversion the Library of
Congress graciously published character mappings to enable the conversion
of MARC-8 data to Unicode.
