Springer Releases New Download Tool for MARC Records or Ebook Title Lists

In order to increase the quality of metadata, Springer released a new web tool that allows catalogers and librarians to easily download tailor-made batches of MARC records (Machine-Readable-Cataloging) or ebook title lists. This new tool is easy to use and allows librarians to download a batch of records to a library’s Springer eBook Collection. The new tool is available through Springer’s MARC portal at http://www.springer.com/marc.

Apart from MARC records, the tool also allows a librarian to download a full or tailored title list of Springer ebooks. Each record in such title lists contains the main bibliographic information, as well as a URL to the ebook on SpringerLink.

Springer claims to be the largest STM ebook publisher and disseminates its ebooks on SpringerLink. Various studies and online usage statistics have proven that cataloging of ebooks drives usage of ebooks substantially. In addition to the tool on its website, Springer can also deliver MARC records through FTP, directly to an institution’s FTP server.
