Subject :      MARC download for retrospective titles

MARC record sets are now available for titles announced during the two retrospective copy

the entire set.  Moreover libraries may specify whether they want the full MARC records or
short MARC records.  

To make your choices and to download the MARC sets, go to the Retrospective Copy
Allotment page at 
and select one of the following links:

--    Full MARC records for my order

--    All full MARC records

--    Short MARC records for my order

Your browser will prompt you to save or open the file.  If you select "save," a dialog box will
open so that you may place the file in the computer directory on your hard drive.
