Why MARC records?
In 2014, in association with a Canada-wide Working Group of cataloging librarians from a wide range of Canadian academic institutions, the Curio.ca team began cataloguing platform content in line with international standards, to ensure the metadata’s easy transfer to library catalogues throughout Canada. We opted for AACR2 cataloging using MARC 21 encoding standards to reach the widest audience possible. (Many smaller Canadian libraries having yet to adopt the RDA cataloguing standard.)
All Curio content is systematically catalogued and indexed with LCSH and RVM subject headings. Our MARC records cover the full curio.ca catalogue and we offer a variety of options for downloading MARC records, based on user preferences.
