Gale is able to provide MARC records for the eBooks available in Gale Virtual Reference Library and National Geographic Kids. You are welcome to download the records to your school or district’s library catalog to provide additional discovery and access points for these eBooks.
In August 2018, the GVRL eBook titles that are available statewide changed. If you previously added GVRL MARC records to your catalog, please refresh your list. Be sure to remove records for titles that are no longer available statewide.
This spreadsheet lists all of the current statewide GVRL titles. The labels in column A and the “by audience” tab may be helpful in deciding which MARC records to download. This list of titles formerly available statewide may be useful to know which records to delete. Notice the “no longer available” tab.
* Note that your location ID is your Gale username. Contact Jennifer Maurer, the School Library Consultant at the State Library, if you need that information.
These are the MARC records for all of the eBooks available in National Geographic Kids. If you only need records for the newest books that were added, you will find those in the section below. There is also a title list that identifies all of the NGK eBooks by title, copyright year, and audience level.
Open either the .mrc or .txt file below. You may have to right click on the link and select “save link/target as” to open the file.
Perform a global replace on the text "[LOCATIONID]" replacing it with your "Gale username" (lowercase, no brackets, no quotes).
Import the updated MARC records into your library catalog.

If you previously downloaded the MARC records for the National Geographic Kids eBooks, you only need records for the newest NGK titles. Follow the instructions outlined in the All Files section, but use these files instead.
