1. How do I retrieve the records?

Please find the appropriate product in the table found on the MARC Records main page and click on its link. This link will bring you to a page that corresponds to your collection. If you do not have a collection, please go to our Individual MARC Records page or New Releases Marc Records page. Once on the page that corresponds to your product(s), please download the records you require for your catalog.

We do provide single files of our new releases for those with Full and Exclusive collections. These sets include only our new releases. Please reference the release/update dates to determine which files you require. We will update the collections’ batch files at the same time so they do include the new releases.

Please Note: Every institution's psychotherapy.net video library has a customized URL to access their collection. Field 856 will need to be modified in each title's record, so your users can directly access the videos in your collection from your catalog. Instructions found below, FAQ #7




2. How do I know if I have a standard or customized (non standard) collection?

You have a customized collection if your institution does not have one of our standard collections.

 Standard Essential Collection Title List (50 titles)
 Standard Expanded Collection Title List (100 titles)

 Social Work Collection Title list (41 titles)
 Full Collection Title list  - Our Full Collection automatically grows as we add new titles; titles added on a regular basis.

7. How do I modify the URL in each MARC record’s Field 856?

Because every institution accesses their video library by a customized URL provided by Psychotherapy.net, or have modified that URL to meet their proxy requirements, you will need to add the appropriate URL to each video's MARC record for your institution.

To facilitate your find/replace process, we have included the following in every record contains:

1. This URL: http://www.psychotherapy.net/stream/xxx
2. The required and corresponding path (/video), parameter (vid) and value of the parameter for every video in our collection.
For example:
For the MARC Record with video ID = "223", you will find the following URL in field 856: 
http://www.psychotherapy.net/stream/xxx/video?vid=223


To add the correct URL to your video's MARC records, please follow the instructions below:
A. If your institution is using username/password authentication to access your video library, simply:

1. Download the MARC Records Key to match the records (sorted by Video ID) to your video titles.
2. Download the files that match your video titles and/or collection.
3. Modify field 856 for your videos' records. Replace the "xxx" with the institution ID that was provided at set up.

For example:
Group University was given the following URL at setup: http://www.psychotherapy.net/stream/group.
In this case, their institution ID = group, so they will change the "xxx" to "group", and the correct URL for video #223's MARC Record file for their video library will be as follows:

http://www.psychotherapy.net/stream/group/video?vid=223


B. If your institution is using proxy server authentication to access your video library, simply:

1. Download the MARC Records Key to match the records (sorted by Video ID) to your video titles.
2. Download the files that match your video titles and/or collection.
3. Modify field 856 for your videos' records. Replace the "xxx" with the institution ID provided at set up.
4. Add your proxy prefix to the URL based on your proxy requirements.


 

8. How will I know if new records are available?

We send out email updates as records are released or updated. Please sign up here to receive updates.
 


9. What is my Institution ID?

To locate your institution ID, please view the video library URL you were given at initial set up. 
All video library URLs (before they have been modified with a proxy prefix) will be formatted like this:

http://www.psychotherapy.net/stream/XXX
 
The Institution ID will always be located after "stream/" and appear in the same position as "XXX"
as found in the above URL.

As a result, "XXX" (without quotes) = the Institution ID.


Here is another example:
Group University was given the following URL at setup: 
http://www.psychotherapy.net/stream/group.   
In this case, their Institution ID = group
