Kanopy provides free MARC records for all films no matter what discovery, catalog, or ILS service your library uses.
Our records are in UTF format (not MARC 8) and comply with the RDA standard. UTF formatting allows us to provide certain customizations for libraries when they download their records (e.g., the URL 856 field captures their website and proxy information).
The overall design of our records was decided in 2012 by a committee that included a leading MARC record consulting company and two U.S. colleges. This committee set the features for our records based on best practices for streaming video MARC record design at the time.
Fixes and enhancements
Kanopy welcomes feedback from libraries about MARC record errors or suggested enhancements through our Feature Request tool. We can typically execute simpler fixes within 24-48 hours. Once the records have been updated, you can export them from your administrative dashboard.
