MARC Records 

MARC records for all titles in the collection are available for free download on our website. If you are a librarian at one of HEB’s subscribing institutions, please follow this link to download a zip file (acls12.zip) containing 363 records for our 371 newly released fall 2015 titles. (Note that one record may cover multiple volumes of the same title.)

New subscribers or those who have not recently updated their MARC records for the collection should instead download the cumulative file acls1-12.zip (covering all titles in rounds 1-12).

If downloading the new records only, please be sure to also remove the six MARC records corresponding to titles removed in this round from your library catalog. These can be found in a file called acls12_REMOVED.zip. (A list of all titles removed from the collection to date can be found here.)
