Exporting records

You can export records from Library Hub Discover to save locally, or for use in reference management or bibliographic software of your choice.

You can export multiple records at once from the search results list, or single records from either the full record display or the holdings screen.

On any results page, the Export option is located at the bottom of the list of records. Choose whether you would like to export all of the records on the current page or the first 500 records from your results set, select a format for the exported records from the dropdown menu, and then click 'Export'. Depending on the browser you are using and your local settings, you will either be prompted to save the file, or it will be saved automically to your downloads folder.

The steps are the same in the record display and on the holdings screens, except that you do not have the option to choose how many records to download. Only the record you are currently viewing will be downloaded.

Export formats

The different export format options are outlined below. Please note that it is not possible to download records in MARC format from Library Hub Discover.

Endnote, Zotero

This option exports records in RIS format (.ris), suitable for upload into reference management software such as EndNote and Zotero.

Tagged (Full)

The Tagged (Full) option exports records in a format with two-letter field tags, which can be imported into EndNote. It includes a fuller list of fields in the exported record than the Tagged (Short) format.

Tagged (Short)

The Tagged (Short) option exports records in a format with two-letter field tags, which can be imported into EndNote. It includes a more concise set of fields in the exported record than the Tagged (Full) format, by excluding fields such as physical description, series title, notes and subjects.

Print format (Full)

The Print format option exports records in a format suitable for printing. The Print format (Full) option contains the full bibliographic details for a title, including notes and the names of libraries holding one or more copies.

Print format (Short)

The Print format option exports records in a format suitable for printing. The Print format (Short) option excludes the physical description, series title, and notes.

BibTeX

This option exports records in BibTeX format (.bib) which can be used with some bibliographic software, and in the creation of LaTeX documents. See the BibTeX website for more information.

XML - MODS

The XML - MODS option exports records in an XML format called MODS. This uses the MODS XML schema for the bibliographic details in the record. MODS is developed and maintained by the Library of Congress and full details are available on the Library of Congress MODS website.

Records exported in the XML - MODS format contain full bibliographic details for a title, plus notes, subject terms and holding libraries.

XML - BibTeXML

The XML - BibTeXML option exports records in an XML format which maps to the BibTeX format described above, and specifically designed for the conversion of BibTeX records into XML. There is more information, including the BibTeXML schema, on the BibTeXML website.
