ebrary Announces On-Demand MARC Records
ebrary (www.ebrary.com) announced that 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. The enhancements were made in response to customer feedback.
Available today, 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.
ebrary currently offers a growing selection of more than 170,000 e-books and other titles from more than 300 leading publishers and aggregators. Founded in 1999, ebrary is privately held and is headquartered in Palo Alto, Calif.
