Book KBART Files

KBART (Knowledge Bases and Related Tools) is a recommended practice of NISO (National Information Standards Organization) that seeks to improve the interactions between knowledge base providers, content providers, and publishers in order to provide higher quality data and linking.

The MUSE data files for all books and collections follow KBART recommended practices. Files are in a plain text, tab-delimited format and are current as of the download time. Please note that if a file is opened in Excel, the formatting of some dates may be altered by Excel and may need to be reformatted.

Please contact MUSE Customer Support with any questions.
