MARC Upgrade

For those who purchased PCIP data from us, we offer the option to add a MARC record later, even after publication.

Elements of MARC Records

Every MARC record contains numbered fields that themselves include various subfields and special codes. They are designed for computers to read, not humans.

Types of Records
MARC records for print, ebook, and audiobook formats contain differing information and coding. Much of the same information may be found in each, but the distinct formats require distinct coding to tell library systems what type of entity it is.

Some audiobooks are physical recordings on tape or disc; a growing number are exclusively digital. The latter are designated in WorldCat as eAudiobooks, while the former are sound recordings.

Lock in Current Prices with Banked Credits

Banked credits let you buy now at the current prices, or at a lower price when we feature a sale, and save those credits until you’re ready to use them. We keep track of your remaining banked credits and they never expire. To purchase banked credits, just place your order via the payment buttons on our PCIP and MARC pages; you may change the quantity during checkout on the PayPal website.

Why do our clients keep coming back?

After a decade in business, we’ve met many wonderful people. Here’s what they say about us.

We have been very satisfied with the PCIP service provided by Five Rainbows and can count on them to deliver quality work, on-time, at competitive prices. We are a regular client and happy to recommend Five Rainbows to others!

Jeff Young, PhD

Publisher, Brown Walker Press

Five Rainbows Services has become our only source for Cataloging-in-Publication data over the last several years. Their prices, accuracy and turnaround are superior to any other vendor we’ve used. They’ve saved us hundreds of dollars and countless hours. I can’t imagine taking our business anywhere else.
