MARC Records for Libraries Using NC LIVE Authentication

MARC Records for Subscription Resources

The MARC records for the subscription resources below change regularly, as vendors add and remove items from the collections. NC LIVE produces new modified record sets for these collections twice per year, with the exception of ebrary.

Libraries seeking the most up-to-date records for these collections should follow the instructions for accessing records directly from vendors. Records accessed directly from vendors require local libraries to add the NC LIVE proxy prefix to URLs in the 856 field for those records. The process for making this change is determined by local ILS workflows. Please contact the NC LIVE Help Desk for more information.
