MARC Records         

    MARC records (bibliographic records provided in standardized form) are vital for the integration of books in libraries. Using a new "Dynamic MARC creation tool," dèsLibris provides a MARC record for every book or document available in the online library as soon as the book or document is released. These records contain the urls/hyperlinks needed to link the record to the book or document in the library collection.

    Delete Files

    From time to time, titles may be removed from dèsLibris subscription packages. When this happens the MARC record is removed from the current sets. To learn more, go to https://delivery.canadianelectroniclibrary.ca/ In order to align your catalogue with the current set of titles, you may use these links to download sets of records which have been deleted for any reason since the record was initially distributed. These Zip files contain a csv list of control numbers and the MARC records affected. These sets contain delete records for any title removed since the first dèsLibris subscriptions were licensed in 2014.

    We have created separate books delete sets for libraries that took part in the 2008 CRKN purchase, since the CRKN licensees retain access to some titles that are no longer in the books subscription collection. Some libraries may hold additional titles that are also in the subscription collection, so may want to check the deletions set against their holdings.
