It contains detailed information about a product’s conformance with accessibility standards (i.e. WCAG 2.1, Section 508, etc.) and accessibility-related features such as its support for assistive technology.

MARC records

We offer complimentary high-quality MARC records through OCLC® for books purchased on ScienceDirect. Please note, MARC records are not available for ScienceDirect journals.

To receive MARC records, complete a one-time setup for data exchange and delivery via OCLC WorldShare Collection Manager. Once set up, your WorldCat library will continuously update with ScienceDirect holdings, and you'll receive automatic MARC deliveries (new, updated, and deleted records) reflecting changes in your ScienceDirect holdings. This ensures your catalog aligns with your ScienceDirect subscription without the need for individual MARC orders per book or collection.
