The SUNCAT downloading service has been expanded to provide a range of options available to SUNCAT Contributing Libraries. These include the choice of:
- Downloading MARC records from a database containing CONSER and ISSN records; and
- Downloading MARC records from a database containing all records from CONSER, ISSN, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and now 17 Contributing Libraries.
A printable guide of search tips, for cataloguers using the Z39.50 connection, is also available.
Please note that the above databases, supplying MARC records, are only available to SUNCAT Contributing Libraries. However, MARC records are freely available to view via the SUNCAT web interface. In addition, there is a free Z39.50 connection to SUNCAT available to anyone who wishes to access the records in Dublin Core XML or SUTRS formats.
SUNCAT is the Serials Union Catalogue for the UK. Visit the service at http://www.suncat.ac.uk or the SUNCAT blog at http://suncatblog.blogspot.com
