Springer Nature Launches an Enhanced Metadata Downloader For Book, Journal Updates and Title Lists
From Springer Nature:
An enhanced Metadata Downloader [first launched in 2011] which will replace the current MARC downloader has now been launched by Springer Nature. This improved web tool provides librarians and library cataloguers with easily downloadable metadata updates which can be embedded into library catalogues, as well as title lists for a library’s licensed content.
New features of the web tool include various download options for journal metadata, alongside the available metadata for eBooks. In addition, the Metadata Downloader allows users to bookmark their settings, which will help them to save time on repeated tasks performed with the Metadata Downloader.
With the launch of the Metadata Downloader, Springer Nature also increases the frequency of available data updates for books and journals hosted on its content platform SpringerLink. The records are updated on a daily basis which helps to further improve the metadata quality. In addition to using the web tool, the data can also be downloaded in static KBART format.
The Metadata downloader can also be accessed directly via: metadata.springernature.com.
