Record Export Service registration form

Your Record Export Service requirements

Actions that trigger downloading of records
The trigger options are Export record, Add holding, Update holding and Delete holding.  You can check all or a combination of the triggers.  The triggers will apply to all users in your organisation who have Libraries Australia cataloguing access.

Character encoding
Allows you to choose one of the radio button options provided.  You can choose either Unicode or MARC8.  If your library system uses Unicode encoding, then select UNICODE.

Output format

  • Unblocked format
    In this format the output is not presented in blocks as with the unspanned format. The records appear in MARC format following on one after the other.
  • Unspanned format
    In unspanned USMARC files, each block of 2048 characters consists of no more than one logical record.  If the record is longer than 2048 characters it continues into the next block.  The next logical record will start in a new block.

Maximum record length

If your output format is UNBLOCKED then any maximum record length can be selected.  Check with your system vendor to see if there are any constraints on the length of records that can be accepted by your system.  Click on the radio button for the length required.

Record collection location

Use this option if you require your records to go into the same location as those of another organisation.
