New ITSMARC data set - MetaMARC (08/10/2021)

    The Library Corporation is making available its newest data set -- MetaMARC -- to library Bibliofile ITSMARC customers.

    MetaMARC is a MARC record data set composed of records generated and enriched algorithmically from non-MARC metadata. The intent of this data collection is to provide catalogers with a basic MARC record when there is no other available title record. MetaMARC records are more than a template but are minimal level encoding, not a full level MARC record. The MetaMARC record set is intended to give catalogers a head start when adding newer materials and a full level MARC record cannot be found. In MetaMARC, catalogers have access to recently published titles as well as a large selection of large print, audiobook, videogame, DVD, and Blu-ray titles.

    To use MetaMARC in BiblioFile, a new Z39.50 search profile must be configured. A video and an instructional document are available to assist with the search profile configuration.

    Commercial vendors utilizing BiblioFile do not qualify for the use of the MetaMARC data set.
