Spring 2017 Workshop: Advance MarcEdit
Thursday May 4, 2017: 9:00AM-2:30PM
Science, Industry and Business Library (SIBL) – New York Public Library
Please join us for a talk by Terry Reese, creator of MarcEdit, free software developed primarily for the library cataloging community to lower technical barriers and empower librarians to take more control over their organization’s metadata. Created in 1999 as a global editing utility for MARC data, MarcEdit has since evolved into a full suite of tools to create, harvest, and manipulate a variety of non-MARC metadata as well. This presentation will provide an overview of the project, how it was started and where it is going.
In addition to the evening program, Terry Reese will be offering a MarcEdit workshop. In this hands-on session, participants will have the opportunity to learn about some of the more advanced-level functions in MarcEdit, including (but not limited to) Regular Expressions, automation, working with Linked data and non XML-data, the API/Command line tool, and ILS integration. Participants are encouraged to submit their own topics of interest and troubleshooting questions when signing up. Some basic knowledge of MarcEdit will be assumed. Space is limited!
