From time to time, titles may be removed from the desLibris subscription packages. When this happens the MARC record is removed from the current sets. In order to align your catalogue with the current set of titles, you may use these links to download sets of records which have been deleted for any reason since the record was initially distributed. These Zip files contain a csv list of control numbers and the MARC records affected.
These sets contain delete records for any title removed since the first desLibris subscriptions were licensed in 2014.
We have created separate books delete sets for libraries that took part in the 2008 CRKN purchase, since the CRKN libraries retain access to some titles that are no longer in the books subscription collection. Some libraries may hold additional titles that are also in the subscription collection, so may want to check the deletions set against their holdings.
Books (Subscription): desLibris-subscr-books-delete
Books (CRKN Members): desLibris-subscr-books-delete-CRKN
Other delete sets may be ordered on demand; please contact email@example.com.
These spreadsheets summarize deletions from the subscription books and documents collections, on both the desLibris and ebrary platforms. The "CRKN-libraries" spreadsheet includes a list of the 66 libraries involved.
Every library holding a desLibris subscription has an account on this MARC record archive. Here all records in the system are available for query or review.
By signing in to your CELArc account, you may access pre-built record sets corresponding to your library’s subscribed content. On the “Export” tab you will also find delete sets for each subscription collection. More information here.
CELArc also has replacement sets:
desLibris_BOOKS Corrected and desLibris_DOCS Corrected, which will be updated as more corrections are made.
Libraries wishing to remove their ebrary CEL subscription holdings may use these ebrary-branded delete sets to remove MARC records for current titles. If you have not applied all ebrary-supplied deletion sets, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional delete sets.

CRKN member libraries participating in the 2008 CRKN purchase may use this delete set to remove those 8129 MARC records. (There is considerable overlap with the subscription collection.)
