On-demand MARC records from ebrary
 
 
 
 

ebrary® customers can now immediately upload free MARC records for individual titles they purchase as well as e-books and other documents added to the company’s subscription databases. Additionally, ebrary’s new MARC features make it easier for customers to manage MARC records and upload large batches.

“As well as providing our customers with the best possible technology for acquiring, sharing, and distributing authoritative digital content, we also strive to provide support and services that make it easier for librarians and information professionals to use and integrate our products,” said Neal Strickberger, ebrary’s Vice President of MIS and Customer Operations. “In gathering feedback from our customers, we heard loud and clear that developing a quicker, more efficient way to obtain and manage MARC records would greatly enhance our offerings. We are pleased to make this request a reality through on-demand MARC features.”

 

ebrary’s on-demand MARC features offer the following capabilities:
   Instant MARC updates – Customers can download new MARC records for purchased titles and additions to subscription e-book collections at any time, as incremental or complete record sets.
   MARC records separated by collection – Customers with multiple subscription collections and purchased titles can download complete or incremental sets of MARC records for specific collections.
   Deleted MARC records – Customers can now obtain deleted records as MARC delete records or on an Excel spreadsheet.
   Complete MARC record sets for large collections – To simplify loading, complete MARC loads are now available from ebrary’s extranet site as batches of 5,000 in a single ZIP file.
