    Community Zone Monograph Records Enrichment

    Brief monograph records in the Alma Community Zone Central KnowledgeBase (CKB) are regularly enriched by Ex Libris using MARC records from several different providers. The schedule of monograph enrichment varies, depending on the availability of new eBook provider records.
     
    Community Zone records enriched by provider MARC data are Provider neutral, and potentially comprised of information from a variety of provider sources (for more information, see Alma Community Catalog: Cataloging Standards, Policies, Rights, and Responsibilities).
     
    For detailed information about serials enrichment using CONSER records, please see Community Zone Serial Records Enrichment.
     

    Review & Agreements for Enrichment

     
    Ex Libris’ legal team reviews each potential provider MARC record set separately for enrichment and inclusion in the Community Zone. Because MARC records are an integral part of vendors’ business models, and Community Zone records are open to use and editing by members of the Alma community, this review is necessary before the addition of any new provider MARC records to the Community Zone.
     
    In many cases, Ex Libris will also need to sign agreements with providers regarding records to be loaded into the Community Catalog.
     
    Please note that this legal review, including intellectual property issues, must be done even if a provider’s MARC records are freely available for personal or library institutional use on a provider’s website.

    Identifying provider records in the Community Zone

     
    When reviewing Community Zone records, you can see the latest source of provider MARC record enrichment in the Originating system. (Please note that this is the latest source; as noted earlier, some records will also potentially have information from multiple provider sources.)
     
    For example, this record was last enriched using a ProQuest Ebook Central MARC21 record:

    The following is a list of provider MARC record sources in the Community Zone, with their associated Originating system, if available. We will continue updating this table to add additional Originating systems, and new provider record sources in the future.
