Free MARC Records
for HeinOnline's Social Justice Suite via Cassidy Cataloguing
In October 2016, HeinOnline unveiled Slavery in America and the World: History, Culture & Law, a unique database released free of charge on a global scale to help librarians guide their communities and create an environment for open and positive dialogue. Less than three years later, we announced another free database, Gun Regulation and Legislation in America, with the same vision. In 2020, we were proud to offer Civil Rights and Social Justice, another free research database dedicated to the fight for civil rights in America. In 2021, at a crucial moment in history, we are proud to offer the Open Society Justice Initiative, as the fourth free database within our Social Justice Suite.
Our official cataloging partner, Cassidy Cataloguing Services, Inc., has now made MARC records available for these three databases* at no additional charge to you. These robust records contain multiple access points of metadata, including title, variant titles, author, editors, compilers, series notes, contents, and—best of all—a one-click URL to take your users directly to the content. These are the same high-quality records utilized for all HeinOnline databases and for Cassidy print publications.
This valuable tool will be delivered in two .mrc files that are easily loaded into any ILS or discovery platform that accepts MARC records. Near the end of the year, Cassidy Cataloguing will offer an update file of records for newly added titles. They will also alert you if any records should be deleted for any reason.
Note: Cassidy Cataloguing will deliver MARC Records in a timely manner for any of the four databases available in the Social Justice Suite. Records for the Open Society Justice Initiative database may be requested at any time but will be delivered closer to September 2021. If you have already received MARC records for any databases in the Social Justice Suite, you do not need to request them again.
