Increase visibility of your Springer Nature eBook and journal collections by loading our MARC  records into your catalogs. Libraries using MARC records may find that their eBook and journal usage may increase by as much as 50%. Because of this we understand the importance of MARC records and we currently offer two delivery options: records from Springer Nature and records from our partnership with OCLC. To understand the differences, please review the chart below and choose which option best meets your needs.
