  2. File of 498 MARC episode-level records in .mrc UTF-8 format
  3. File of 498 episode-level records in .mrk format for viewing/manipulating with MarcEdit or other text editing program
    For example, individual libraries may want to:
    - modify/remove 035 field with OCLC number
    - change 049 code to institution's own code
    - modify/delete 856 fields for local hosting of videos, if appropriate
  4. JMU "cheat sheet" document
  5. Text file of OCLC record numbers that can be used to add institutional holding symbols in OCLC through a batch process.
