Book records update

Springer Nature frequently adds books to eBook packages. Therefore it’s recommended to frequently check for new and modified records in all of your licensed eBook packages. The Metadata Downloader allows you to select packages, copyright years, and ‘Starting from [date]’. You can customize the date since you last picked up records from the tool to find only the new records.

The metadata downloader for Books now provides three options: 

  • Collections with reference works – applicable to all current eBook collection customers and providing the same download as previously available 
  • Collections (R0) – collections excluding the reference works 
  • Reference Modules – reference works only 

MARC Records are also available for our Open Access eBooks and Journals. For libraries that do not license our eBook or Journals there is an option to select just the OA titles matching the disciplines your library covers.
