Defining EDS Custom Catalog Publication Types

EBSCO defines Publication Type within Custom Catalog databases based on the MARC21 record constructs.

Currently, only eBook and Audiobook Publication Types are configurable against the customer-defined criteria requested in the Catalog Questionnaire . If you wish to see records mapped as a certain Publication Type, you will need to manually make the changes in your MARC21 records per the rules defined in the table below.

Catalog Publication Types are designated by the Leader, positions 06 and 07.  For more information, visit the Library of Congress’s Leader designation page .
