I had to call Brodart to figure out that barcodes and spine labels for the
Brownstone books were tucked away inside the books, so thought I would
share the secret. Below are the instructions for downloading the records.

You may connect to our FTP site using a variety of methods. Below are two

File naming on our FTP site:
Files are named using a 15 character file name beginning with M,
indicating this is a MARC file, followed by 4 digit year, 2 digit month, 2
digit day, ending with a 6 digit sequence number. The file name extension
will always be FIL.
Example: M20090312021729.FIL would indicate the file was created on March
12, 2009 and is sequence number 021729.
