I had to call Brodart to figure out that barcodes and spine labels for the

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.
