In theory, that information should be findable in MARC21 by comparing
the data in tags 008/39 and 040 with the library's own MARC code to
figure out what was locally-created.

In practice, a lot of records seem to have nonsense in 040, so it
would have to be controllable by cleverly-designed preferences with a
default of "offer nothing for download".

Hope that informs,
