About MARC records for the products

The the MARC Records (both revised records, and information about changes that can be made to existing records in library catalogs) necessitated by our migration from LexisNexis to ProQuest are available.  The LexisNexis URLs in our old MARC records no longer work.

 

Please contact Technical Support (tsupport@proquest.com) for the URL and login credentials if you need the fresh, revised, records. 


For those with the old, LexisNexis URLs in the 856 field, the primary change for the new MARC records is with the URL in the 856 field. We have also made other minor changes to the records to reflect the company change from LexisNexis to ProQuest.

 


If you don’t want to reload your MARC records, you can make the changes with a find/replace in your library catalog system, if your system permits. The instructions for the find and replace are located on this page.

For OCLC WorldCat Local customers, we will be providing revised versions of these records to OCLC for loading into WorldCat Local. Currently, OCLC expects to batch load all these records in a quarterly reload later in 2013.

The following sets of MARC records are included:

  • ProQuest Congressional Hearings Digital Collections (CHDC)*
  • ProQuest Congressional Research Digital Collections (CRDC; CRS Reports & Committee Prints)*
  • ProQuest Congressional Record Permanent Digital Collections (CRPDC)
  • ProQuest U.S. Serial Set Digital Collections (I & II)
  • ProQuest History Vault
  • ProQuest Legislative Insight
     

When the Find and Replace instructions are available, the MARC records will be, as well.
