Metadata update: Books records update
Springer Nature frequently adds books to eBook packages. The metadata downloader for Books now provides three new options.
New URL for Metadata Downloader
In September a new URL was activated for the Springer Nature Metadata Downloader. We have a redirect URL in place directing any traffic from the previous URL to the new one, therefore access to the downloader should remain uninterrupted.
MARC Records Enhancements and new KBARTs for Springer Nature New Flexible eBook Solutions
Supporting the rollout of the new Springer Nature Flexible eBook Solutions, we have successfully released enriched MARC records and rolled out new KBARTs.
The New Metadata Downloader: Richer Data, Improved Discoverability
Springer Nature has replaced its MARC Downloader with an enhanced Metadata Downloader which is seeing fast uptake from the global library community. We asked two of the minds behind the tool - Sebastian Bock, Digital Product Manager in the Metadata Management Team and Björn Johansson, Senior UX Designer – what had inspired the new tool, what improvements they’ve made, and how it has been welcomed by librarians.
