Legislative Library MARC Records
The Provider Neutral Record Standard (PDF) for the Legislative Library of British Columbia (LLBC) Batch MARC Records was created by the BCLA Cataloguing and Technical Services Interest Group (BCCATS) community, specifically the University of Victoria, University of Northern British Columbia, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, University of British Columbia, and Simon Fraser University.
Every month the University of Victoria modifies the original LLBC MARC records into Provider Neutral electronic resource records and these files are shared on the BC ELN website. For additional background on this project, see Nancy Stuart's article Legislative Library of British Columbia MARC records (BCLA Browser: Linking the Library Landscape, 3.1, 2011).
In September 2014, it was reported that some modified records contained errors in the 300 field as well as a few 856 field errors. The affected records, mostly from 2014 but some as far back as 2009, have been fixed and re-uploaded below. These records are in MARC21 MARC-8 format.
Monthly records are now available for previous years only by request. If you experience any issues with the Provider Neutral records, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Sunni Nishimura at BC ELN.
BC Royal Commission Documents MARC Records
In 2017 the Legislative Library made a collection of 755 records called the "BC Royal Commission Documents MARC Records" available. These records have been processed by the University of Victoria into Provider Neutral records and made available as a Monographs and Serials collection.
Fixed 300 & 856 Field Records Only
Three MARC files containing only the corrected records are available. Sites that have already loaded all their records may wish to just upload the changed files below. Files include the Monographs and Serials containing the 300 field fix as well as an additional file with 12 records containing a URL fix in the 856 field.
