Digitalia MARC 21 records can be downloaded here by library professionals free of charge and they can be loaded into your library's catalog directly.

Digitalia records are compliant with NACO and SACO, and Library of Congress guidelines, contain LC call numbers, and are provided in MARC 21 format with MARC-8 character encoding.
