ACS catalogs most electronic monographs for which the library has licensed access. It is no longer ACS’s practice to add e-book links to print records. E-books are represented in the catalog by separate records for the electronic version. When the library has access to the same title through multiple vendors, a bibliographic record, with appropriate links and notes, will be added to the catalog for each vendor. The addition of records to our catalog for unlicensed content that is freely available online should be avoided. When cataloging e-books, ACS follows PCC’s guidelines for provider-neutral records.
