About the Project

Open Education North Carolina (OENC) is an initiative led by NCLIVE that aims to reduce the cost of higher education for North Carolina students by providing free, open e-textbooks for 30 of the most frequently-taught courses across North Carolina’s 2 and 4-year colleges and universities. See more details about the initiative here:

NCLIVE have curated ebook titles for the OENC collections. There is a demand from NCLIVE community to have MARC records for titles in the OENC collections. A&D Monographs will perform cataloging work for the OENC collections. 

About the Work

1. There are 48 ebook titles now as of July, 2019. All titles to be cataloged are stored in the google spreadsheet OENC Collection Content:

2. Additional titles will be added twice a year. The next batch with less than ten titles will be available for cataloging in 2019 summer. Around twenty titles will be added in October 2019. 

3. Some will be original cataloging and some copy cataloging.  

4. Turn-around time is flexible, but the sooner the better as librarians have been asking for the marc records. 

5. NCLIVE will add the MARC records to their website for NCLIVE members to download.
