Marc records are now available available on OECD iLibrary provided in MARC21 XML format according to U.S. Library of Congress specifications.
In its initital phase, bibliographic data for Books is made available covering the following content items:
- Each Monograph (ad-hoc book) not part of any serial (e.g. Cities and Climate Change)
- Each Book as part of a book series or country studies book series (e.g. Human Capital as part of OECD Insights or OECD Environmental Performance Reviews: Greece 2009 as part of OECD Environmental Performance Reviews)
- Each Glossary (e.g. OECD Glossary of Statistical Terms)
- Each book series (e.g. OECD Insights)
Each country studies series (e.g. OECD Environmental Performance Reviews)
- Each Annual (e.g. Health at a Glance)
- OECD Economic Outlook periodical
- OECD Economic Surveys periodical
- Each OECD Economic Surveys by country serial (e.g. OECD Economic Surveys: France)
- MARC records are generated in English only, and describe the online version of a publication/serial. However, MARC records are generated for publications/serials in other language versions than English, but the record itself will be produced in English.
- MARC records are not generated for every content item type published on OECD iLibrary. For instance, no records are needed for chapters, tables, graphs, or for each journal issue, each annual book edition, each OECD Economic Outlook edition, each OECD Economic Surveys edition, each statistical periodical issue, or each article of a statistical periodical issue.
The records are offered for downloading in two files:
- One comprehensive file containing MARC records for all books currently on OECD iLibrary: All Books (including latest update)
- One Incremental file containing MARC records for all books added or updated in the last month: Latest Books Update only (incremental)
In the next phase OECD iLibrary will also provide MARC records for all papers/journals and statistical content on OECD iLibrary. These records should become available in the beginning of 2011.
