KBART Files

KBART (Knowledge Bases and Related Tools NISO RP-9-2014) is a recommended practice of NISO (National Information Standards Organization) —which is intended primarily for serial and monograph titles to improve the interactions between knowledge base providers, content providers, and publishers in order to provide higher quality data and linking. 

We have KBART files available for all our E-Book only collections. The KBART files are in Tab Delimited Text format as specified by KBART recommendations. Please note that if the tab delimited file is opened in Excel, some formatting may be modified by Excel. To reformat the dates in the Excel file: Format > Cells > Date > select format YYYY-MM-DD.
