MarcEdit: An Introduction

Wednesday, December 8, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm Central Time
University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, Wilson Library, S30C

Have you been longing for an efficient way to manage, edit or analyze large groups of bib records? Come learn about MarcEdit, a freely downloadable metadata software suite available at no cost on the Internet. MarcEdit is designed for large-scale batch record processing, including batch editing MARC records, character set conversions, and record extractions. It also provides users with the ability to perform crosswalks between MARC and other data formats (e.g. Dublin Core). This workshop demonstrates how to edit large batches of records and discusses how your library might use MarcEdit to enhance your workflows.

You are welcome to bring your own laptop if you would like. (UMN will provide Wi-Fi access.) By bringing a laptop you can get the MarcEdit program downloaded, configured, and ready to take back to your library.

The presenter will be Terry Reese the creator of MarcEdit and the Gray Family Chair for Innovative Library Services at Oregon State University.
