DOAB MARC files

These are MARC records created from metadata supplied by DOAB (Directory of Open Access Books). They describe the Open Access and Free-to-read ebook titles in the DOAB database. There are three files:

DOAB-CCONLY-20240404.mrc (64,850 records): these records describe DOAB titles that include explicit mention of a CC license in the metadata. They are tagged as "Open Access" in the MARC records.

DOAB-NOCC-20240404.mrc (13,742 records): these records describe DOAB titles that do NOT explicitly mention a CC license in the metadata. They are tagged as "Free-to-read" in the MARC records.

DOAB-NODOWNLOADS-20240404.mrc (851 records): these records describe DOAB titles for which only a limited number of chapters are available in DOAB. There are no download links in these records; the links point to descriptions of the work which themselves point to downloadable chapters.

Total number of records: 79,443

The files will be updated monthly. Questions or suggestions for improvements to the records can be directed to Jeff Edmunds, jhe2@psu.edu.
