SCIS records can be downloaded in the form of a zip file that contains the catalogue records and available cover images. This is the default download format.
Options to change your download format can be found under School/Organisation Settings in My Profile. Please consult with your library system vendor before updating your preferences.
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 file has been unzipped, you can then import the contents of the unzipped file into your library management system. If you require assistance with import, please contact your library system vendor.
