MARC records

MARC records are updated each time we release content to the site and are available per collection and per geographic area. Our MARC21 records are SACO and NACO-compliant. Please view the tables below to download the relevant records as .mrc files. The .mrc files are available after they're extracted from the .rar or .zip suppression files (using any software such as winzip, winrar, 7zip).

The below records contain all content in the Core Collection.
