In making the transition from CEL on ebrary to desLibris, many libraries will need to retire their ebrary records and replace them with desLibris records in their catalogues.
This page provides guidance in carrying out this task.
desLibris records differ from the original CEL records in these ways:
|001||The control number is the Document ID in each system.|
|490/830||Notes and Series statements. ebrary-branded records may have multiple notes and series statements, depending on the collection or collections (h, p or hp) to which they belong, whereas desLibris records are either in the Books or Documents collection, and have only one note and series statement to that effect.|
|490/830||CEL series statements and justifying notes are removed|
|856||ebrary urls are site-specific or "branded" with a library site name. desLibris urls are not branded but uniform. There is only one url for any given title. This allows any given record set (such as "desLibris Documents" to be used interchangeably, simplifying the permutations and combinations.|
