Legislative Library of British Columbia MARC records

Abstract


In December 2009 the Legislative Library of British Columbia launched a new MARC Records Batch Service.  The MARC records available are based on the current issue of the British Columbia Publications Monthly Checklist.  The MARC records include only the records for publications which have electronic formats.  Since many libraries were not receiving the print equivalent, they wanted to load an electronic resource record for the publication.  This required modifying the marc file, something many of the smaller libraries were not able to do easily.  The BCCATS (British Columbia Cataloguing and Technical Services) Interest Group of BCLA initiated a project to create a provider neutral electronic resource record and make it available to all BC libraries.
