19/07/2018 Important Update!

We regret to inform you that we have spotted a mix-up in one of our MARC record files, namely: the ‘’KU Select 2017’’ file. Anyone who has retrieved this file between June 28th and July 18th, which included 143 titles, please be aware that this file includes records from the ''KU Open Services'' Collection as well. The file included 69 records of the ''KU Select 2017'' Collection, but also 74 records of the ''KU Open Services'' Collection. If you have cataloged these records, and do not wish to include any ''KU Open Services'' records, please remove them / overwrite them with the new file uploaded on July 19th, including 69 records. This file is correct. Our apologies for this mix up and we are taking measures to prevent this from occurring in future files. In case of any questions please get in touch with us directly via the chat window.
