The Now and Future MarcEdit: A Day-long Workshop with Terry Reese LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

MarcEdit developer Terry Reese will devote a day-long workshop to using MarcEdit to improve your workflow for cataloging and metadata. He will address basic and more advanced aspects of using the product, and will explain what is new in the release of MarcEdit 7.0. Common applications of MarcEdit are for batch editing of MARC records, including files of vendor records, database maintenance/cleanup, and record extraction. Terry will show some basic processes that attendees may try on their laptops. The product has developed greatly from its origins as utility for editing MARC records. Terry will move on to some of the more advanced applications, including but not limited to ILS integration, cross-walking records from non-MARC metadata formats (Dublin Core, EADS, MODS and more). The day will culminate in using regular expressions in MarcEdit, with participants having the opportunity to try the basics of this advanced application.

If you have wondered if MarcEdit could improve your work flow with tasks in cataloging and metadata, or you would like to take better advantage of MarcEdit capabilities, remember that space is limited for this special opportunity as an OLA pre-conference workshop. Every registrant will need to bring a laptop and power cord.
