A bibliographic record for a MP3 audiobook is very similar to a record for an audiobook on CD.

Differences are in the 300, 500, and 538 fields where the format is identified as MP3 and the system requirements are explained. A second 655 field is added to a MP3 bib record to further identify the record as for a MP3 recording.

The GMD for a MP3 record is [sound recording], the same GMD used for an audiobook on CD. Please follow AACR2 rules and do not customize the GMD into something like “sound recording, MP3”.

Patrons and staff can easily identify a MP3 record in the OPAC by looking at the 300 field. Most libraries also help their patrons spot MP3s by using call numbers like “MP3 CDBOOK” or “MP3 AUDIO”.
Here is a partial bib record (in correct field order) for a typical MP3 audiobook:
