Nielsen Book, part of global information and media group Nielsen Company, US, has announced an agreement with library audio visual (AV) supplier, Library Multimedia Supplies (LMS). LMS is part of the Pilton Group of companies which in turn is a wholly owned subsidiary of DCC Plc.
Under the deal, LMS will make BookData Multimedia MARC records available via their website www.librarymultimedia.com. Customers will be able to select products from the LMS website and download the corresponding BookData Multimedia MARC record, making the process of accessing high quality MARC data as seamless as possible. The company will work closely with Nielsen Book to support and promote the service to its existing and prospective customers over the coming weeks.
MARC records are available in both UKMARC and MARC21 formats. In order to take advantage of this service, libraries will need to enter into a subscription agreement directly with Nielsen Book. As the company already supplies data services to most public libraries, this is expected to be a straightforward process.
