Curio.ca Metadata

Why MARC records?

In June 2014, in association with a Canada-wide Working Group of cataloging librarians from a wide range of Canadian academic institutions, the Curio.ca team began cataloging platform content in line with international standards, to ensure the metadata’s easy transfer to library catalogues throughout Canada. We opted for AACR2 cataloging using MARC 21 encoding standards to ensure we would reach the widest audience possible. (Many smaller Canadian libraries have yet to fully adopt the RDA cataloging standard launched in 2013.) About 95 percent of Curio.ca programming has been catalogued to date, and incomplete MARC records are available for the remaining five percent. We aim to catalogue all new material (including 6XX and 7XX fields), in addition to programming from the back catalogue.

How do I download MARC records for Curio.ca content?
