K-12 Resources

Welcome Oregon K-12 Libraries!

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.


K12 – Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL) eBook MARC Records

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.


    MARC record retrieval instructions:
  • Click here to access the MARC records page.
  • Click on "Sign In" (orange box, upper right corner), enter your Gale Location ID (username)*, and press the "Return/Enter" key.
  • Hover over "Product Support" in the top navigation, and click on "MARC Records".
  • Click on the grey "EBOOKS" box near the top left of the page.
  • When the new page loads, you have two options:
      • If you want all eBook MARC records, check the box next to the word "Title".
      • If you want the records for specific eBooks, check the box by each title that you want.
      • Ignore the two “invoice” options.
  • Click on the orange “Download Records” button on the left to complete your file.
  • When the next page loads, click on the "Download Records" link to download your file.
