LC MARC English

We receive records from the Library of Congress on a daily and weekly basis. These records are then used to create our LC MARC English database.

The LC MARC English is run on a daily basis. There are two different products that stem from this daily run. LAST5DAY, which contains the last 5 days of data sent by Library of Congress, and the CURRENT is the complete database updated daily.
