Batch Cataloging without a Subscription: Excel Spreadsheet to MARC Records

Written by Joan on December 1, 2014. Posted in Blog

MARCIVE has offered cataloging services since 1981. Did you know we can provide full MARC records from your Excel spreadsheet, with no annual minimums or subscription fees?

This service is perfect for the library that:

  • Has purchased a large set of resources and only received an Excel spreadsheet from a vendor (e.g. Overdrive).
  • is run primarily of volunteers with no cataloging experience, such as a church or small school library.
  • received a large donation of books from a personal collection.
  • is looking for an economical and fast way to upgrade their database to a MARC-based ILS.

If you supply us with an Excel spreadsheet with ISBN numbers, call numbers, and location, we can match those records in a batch process, and supply you with full MARC records for only $.27 per record! Don’t worry if your spreadsheet has more or less fields, let us take a look and we’ll let you know what we can do.

Our service can also provide:

  • Smart barcode labels
  • Authority records
  • MARC record enrichment (TOC, fiction/biographies, summaries)
  • Reading notes (Accelerated Reader, Lexile® Measures, and Reading Counts)
  • Book label sets
  • Catalog card images
  • Book catalog

No matching record? No problem! There are two options:

  • Search on your own. Sometimes, the information in the record is not sufficient to safely make a match in an automated process. You can compare your original list with the records/labels received or use the Book catalog to manually search MARCIVE WebSelect for all the no matches.
  • Have us map the records to MARC for you. We can map the metadata to the appropriate MARC fields for you to simply load into your ILS.
