SCIS records are downloaded in the form of a zip file that contains the catalogue records and any available cover images.
To unzip the file, do one of the following:
- Open the zipped folder, then drag the specific file/s or folder/s you want from within the zipped folder to a new location; or
- Right-click the zipped folder, select Extract All, and then follow the instructions.
Once your zip file has been unzipped, you can then import the contents of the unzipped file into your library management system. If you require assistance with this importing part, please contact your library system vendor.
