These are full RDA-compliant records in MARC21 format, and they include Library of Congress Subject Headings, book summaries, table of contents, accessibility information, related ISBNs and DOI-based persistent URL links. We recommend that you use MARCEdit to open our MARC records. You can find more detail on this here.

KBART (Knowledge Bases and Related Tools NISO RP-9-2014) is a recommended practice of NISO (National Information Standards Organization) —which is intended primarily for serial and monograph titles to improve the interactions between knowledge base providers, content providers, and publishers in order to provide higher quality data and linking.

We have KBART files available for all our E-Book only collections. The KBART files are in Tab Delimited Text format as specified by KBART recommendations. Please note that if the tab delimited file is opened in Excel, some formatting may be modified by Excel. To reformat the dates in the Excel file: Format > Cells > Date > select format YYYY-MM-DD.
