Requesting MARC Records (MBLN members only)

The goal of the MBLN cataloging service is to add MARC bibliographic records to the database when member libraries cannot find an appropriate record to link their item record(s).

Members should request a MARC record from the cataloging service after thoroughly searching Polaris to find a matching bibliographic record.  If after searching you are unable to find a match, proceed with requesting a record.
