About MARC Records
Infobase provides MARC Records for use in your catalog system. If you are unfamiliar with MARC, it stands for Machine Readable Cataloging and is a standard format for bibliographic records. For additional information about the MARC standard, visit: http://www.loc.gov/marc/. MARC records are currently available for the video, audio, and interactive content types in Learn360.
The MARC files provided here utilize the MARC21 UTF-8 character set. At your discretion, MARC records can be converted and edited using the MarcEdit software available at: http://marcedit.reeset.net/
Below you'll find instructions for creating and downloading MARC record files. For assistance importing the MARC records into your system, or if you aren't if MARC records are the best way to add content to your catalog, please contact your catalog's support team.
Creating MARC Files
MARC Records are available to account administrators and can be found under the MARC Records tab of the Title Data section of the Administration Portal. They can be created and downloaded in few different ways.
Using the Generate New Records button is the easiest way to get a batch of all the of records added since your last download. It will include everything that has been added since the indicated date. For first time users, pressing this button will create a single file that includes all available records.
Custom batch options are also available, using the MARC Records creation tool:
Custom MARC Record files can be generated in one of four ways:
Once you have decided on your batch retrieval method, filter options, etc. you can enter a custom filename. If you do not enter a filename, a generic name will be assigned. The final step is to click the Generate File button. Note: large batches can take several seconds to a minute to generate.
Downloading MARC Files
When the batch file is ready it will display in the table below.
Email notifications are sent out when new MARC Records becomes available for your account. If you are not receiving these notifications and would like to, please contact Technical Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
