Time: 9:00am-5pm (1 hr. lunch break)
Location: Vassar College Library, Poughkeepsie, NY
Trainer: Terry Reese
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, MODS, EAD, JSON, and CSV/TXT). This workshop demonstrates how to edit large batches of records and discusses how your library might use MarcEdit to enhance your workflows.
Who should go? Anyone looking for an efficient way to manage, edit or analyze large groups of bib records, and those who already use MarcEdit. The workshop will be a hybrid lecture/hands-on workshop. All data for the workshop and examples will be made available for attendees looking to follow along -- but the workshop will not have any specific hands-on activities due to time and content constraints. However, if you’ve worked with MarcEdit, or have questions or problems with some hard to work with data – bring them along.
Terry Reese is currently the Head of Digital Initiatives at The Ohio State University Libraries. He created and has been working on MarcEdit since 1999.
Cost: The workshop is $35 for members, $55 for non-members. (Members are both direct members and associates: members of MHLS, RCLS, other ESLN councils or BOCES.) Catered lunch is included.
This class size is limited!
