HI Dennis,

Sorry it took me a bit to respond, I've been on travel.

 You can set the recordschema to MARC21-xml directly in Tellico. Add your
accessToken in the parameter list there. I'll attach a screenshot. Sounds
like you got that to work.

Now, as to why there's only one response, DNB isn't sending back valid
MARC21 XML as Tellico interprets it, based on the Library of Congress
schema. If you modify the installed MARC21slim2MODS3.xsl file slightly,
it'll work. I'll attach a modified copy - overwrite your installed version
or put a personal copy in ~/.local/share/tellico/.

With those changes, I get over 25 results in Tellico.
