Springer Science + Business Media released a new web tool allowing catalogers and librarians to download batches of MARC records or ebook lists to their libraries' Springer ebook collections. The ebook title lists from Springer contain the main bibliographic information and a URL to each ebook on SpringerLink.

Designed to increase metadata quality, the tool also delivers MARC records to an institution's FTP server. Springer distributes its STM ebook collections via SpringerLink, and has found that efficient cataloging increases ebook usage.
