Institutions may require MARC (Machine Readable Cataloging) records for the content in their collection(s). An institution can complete the following steps to generate an .mrc file.

  1. Login to Explore
  2. Click on the Institutions tab, then on Integrations
  3. Click on the MARC Records button. You will see a "Generating Records" message, and your file will automatically download.


If your Collection(s) contain more than 1,000 MARC records, the .mrc file will be emailed to you.

For more information about MARC standards and general information, visit the Library of Congress website
