is designed to provide comprehensive access to a customer's e-collection, regardless of vendor or where the content is hosted. Many libraries use a listing service like EBSCO A-to-Z as a supplement to the library catalog. Some also want to include this information in their online catalog, but the ever-changing nature of e-content makes manually cataloging the titles impractical. Even with vendors who provide MARC files and lists of titles with links, creating an automated process for loading these files is daunting. EBSCO offers a solution by adding a MARC record updates service.
EBSCO MARC Updates are the most efficient way to ensure your library’s e-resources are accessible through your library catalog. The MARC Updates service offers an automated and highly customizable monthly feed of MARC cataloging for all of your online titles regardless of vendor or where the content is hosted.
