What are MARC Records and why would I want them?

A MARC record is a MAchine-Readable Cataloging record, providing a standard format for identifying elements of bibliographic data, such as Title, Publisher, Description, and Links to components.  Basically, it’s the modern-day equivalent of the cards in the card catalog of yesteryear.  MARC Records are entered into cataloguing software so that end-users can search the online catalogue and be directed to a variety of resources within the collection that match their needs.  Wolters Kluwer, L&RS (division) provides MARC records free of charge to Schools, Libraries and law firms.

Does Wolters Kluwer publish a MARC record for every title in my subscription?

Wolters Kluwer generates MARC records for most titles, but not all. For examples records are not produced for archives, practice tools, indexes, and finding devices. That said, if you have purchased a title and desire a MARC record, contact customer support with the request and we will do our best to accommodate you.

How often are MARC records updated?  

MARC Records are updated with new MARC records & edits to existing records on a regular editorial cycle of every two months. The MARC Records Manager software is updated as necessary.


When titles are updated, do you keep the same control number?

When a MARC record is updated, the control number is not changed. The date in the “Record Updated” column will reflect the new version.


What enhancements are being considered for future software release?

The next planned release is scheduled for July 2017. Planned enhancements include:

  • A new feature that provides the ability to view all the product titles, even if MARC records are not currently available.
  • System performance improvements that will reduce the time it takes to log in and view the initial set of MARC records.
  • MARC Records Manager will be enhanced to provide MARC records for additional Wolters Kluwer platforms.
