MARC Records

Gale is able to provide MARC records for ebooks that are available in two databases – Gale eBooks and National Geographic Kids. You are welcome to download the records to your library catalog to provide additional discovery and access points for those ebooks.

Gale eBooks MARC Records

In August 2023, additional Gale eBooks titles were added to the statewide collection. If you previously added Gale eBooks MARC records to your catalog, please refresh your list. Be sure to remove records for titles that are no longer available statewide.

This spreadsheet lists all of the current statewide Gale eBooks titles. The labels in the Code, Audience Level, and Interest Level columns may be helpful in deciding which MARC records to download. This list of titles formerly available statewide may be useful to know which records to delete. Notice the “no longer available” tab.

To retrieve MARC records for Gale eBooks titles, download the relevant audience set(s). Note that when a title's interest levels span two audience levels, that title will appear in both audience sets. Or, if you would prefer to build your own set, follow the directions in the Downloading Ebook MARC Records section.
