Adding other eBooks(How to edit a MARC record for ebooks that are not Follett ebooks)

-Editing the hypertext link to your eBook (in the MARC record)

  • In Easy Editor, use the Resources tab to edit the 856 tag: indicate which schools have rights, and the vendor (so home users know what password to use).
  • For a district-wide license, please use “Online access for K-12.”
  • For your individually purchased titles, each library that owns that eBook needs a unique link where both the description AND the URL are unique. For an example, see this title: World of forensic science

  • In MARC Editor view, edit thecall number in the 082 tag.
    eBook E, eBook Fiction or eBook 938 (eBook Dewey #)
  • In MARC Editor view, check the020 tag to see that the ISBN is noted as an ebook and that no other ISBNs are in the record: e.g., 0761442006 (e-book). Please do not include ISBNs for any print versions in an eBook MARC record. If someone purchases a print version, they would attach that copy to a different MARC record, one that has the print version ISBNs. And yes, that means that we will have 2 MARC records in the database for that title: one for the eBook version, and one for the print version.
  • In Easy Editor view - Series/Notes tab-, edit interest level, and Lexile.
  • Add an image for the cover if possible.
