Curio’s catalogue is fairly dynamic and content is added on a weekly basis, and from time to time they lose rights to certain assets, principally acquisitions.
To ensure an up-to-date Curio catalogue, it is recommend downloading Curio’s MARC records on a regular basis. The catalogue is updated every day and many libraries download our records every 2 to 3 weeks. Curio offers MARC records for created, modified and deleted assets. More complete information is available in the Help Center, both here and here.
In addition, where applicable, the end-of-rights date for any given asset appears in field 541 of our MARC records.
