MARC records on this page are freely available and are updated regularly. Below you can find MARC records separated by collection and separate title lists as well as a master file which includes MARC records for all the KU titles combined.

Subsitutes and Changes

A complete list of the KU Select Collections, identifiers, substitute titles and further changes

*Please note that we have made a necessary change to some of the KU records to create a strictly unified system for the record IDs, both historic and going forward. From now on, all records will have the KU ID in field #001 (a 6-digit number, starting with 0 or 1) unique for each book.*

*Apart from the KU ID, you can also identify books by the OAPEN IDs which will still be included in the =856 field, which contains the download URLs for the files. You can find all KU IDs and corresponding OAPEN IDs on this page*
