Item-level MARC records are delivered for all Books in Canada Commons.
Item-level MARC records are delivered for the publications in this category. A document is considered part of the premium collection when it is licensed or permanently preserved in our database because its originating organization is no longer active or has closed its doors.
When it comes to the hundreds of thousands of open documents in Canada Commons, we deliver an Integrating Resource MARC record at the organization-level, not the item-level.
The decision to deliver Integrating Resources MARCs was made in consultation with librarians during beta testing. Because the open document collection is continually expanding and will grow beyond one million records, a streamlined approach was preferred.
Effective May 1, 2022, your existing installed base of records for desLibris will be automatically redirected to Canada Commons. No immediate action is required.
However, if you maintain legacy records, your catalog will still display “View on desLibris.” The link will simply resolve to Canada Commons.
When you are ready, if you prefer to load our updated version of desLibris MARC records, your catalog will correctly display “View on Canada Commons.”
Our customer portal for accessing MARC records (and COUNTER usage reports) is under development and will be available by mid-summer 2022.
Until then, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work directly with you to get you the information you need.
We would appreciate any feedback or suggestions on improving our MARC records.
