  1. 1. MARCEdit must be downloaded on to your computer first; otherwise you won’t be able to save the binary file as a MARC file (.mrc)
  2. 2. Ebsco ebooks files/records are in a binary format and must be converted to MARC; Ebsco will send an email containing a tracking number of the ebook file; Ebsco’s ebook records are held on the OCLC website; http://psw.oclc.org/psw/ Click on “Records and Reports” Click on “OCLC WorldCat Cataloging Partners labels, records and reports” Enter OCLC authorization and password Click OK

  6. 6. Highlight downloaded ebook file; click “Open”
  7. 7. Next go to the “Output File:” section; I like to save to my desktop (it now comes up as a default); Perhaps during the first try you will need to go through to path to get to the desktop or where ever you wish to save the file; the file will be listed as an “.mrk” file and we need to save as an “.mrc” file; choose the “Save as type:” arrow and select “MARC Files (*.mrc); click Save
