Ebsco Titles & MARC Records

Did you know that you can obtain MARC records for the titles listed in the Ebsco databases? This might be a good way to remind library staff and patrons alike that the journal titles are available through the database. You can obtain the MARC records from EbscoAdmin. Here are the steps to take:

  1. Log into EbscoAdmin.
  2. Click on the "Database Title Lists" tab located at the top of the page.
  3. Choose the MARC 21 tab.
  4. Choose to get the records for only the Full Text titles.
  5. Download the desired files to your computer and upload into your catalog.
  6. Note: There will be some overlap in records if you choose to upload records from (for instance) Academic Search Premier and MasterFile Premier.
  7. Note: Academic Search Premier holds 3700 full text titles!
If you need your EbscoAdmin password resent, contact Bobbi at NHSL.
