MarcEdit: An Introduction and Beyond the Basics Workshop

On Thursday April 7 and Friday April 8, 2011 attendees of the two MarcEdit workshops presented by the CLA Technical Service Interest Group, met up with colleagues and learned new skills about MarcEdit, a freely downloadable metadata software suite available at no cost on the Internet. MarcEdit, designed for large-scale batch record processing, including batch editing MARC records, character set conversions, and record extractions, provides users with the ability to perform crosswalks between MARC and other data formats (e.g. Dublin Core). This workshop demonstrated how to edit large batches of records and discusses how your library might use MarcEdit to enhance your workflows. Terry Reese, Gray Family Chair for Innovative Library Services at Oregon State University (OSU) and co-author of Building Digital Libraries: a how-to-do-it manual, led both sessions.
