This workshop requires pre-registration. Fee: $50

MarcEdit is a free suite of software tools developed by Terry Reese and is widely used by information professionals to create or edit metadata that originates in or is bound for the MARC format. MarcEdit was originally developed in 1999 to aid in an ILS database clean-up project and since, has grown to include tools useful for crosswalking various types of metadata, OAI harvesting, as well as adding URIs to records to facilitate linked open data. Through the use of APIs, the software can also integrate with OCLC WorldCat and some ILSs, offering further opportunities for streamlining cataloging workflows.

Terry Reese will join us for a hands-on workshop geared toward beginning to intermediate users of the software. An introductory lightning round comprised of community members currently leveraging MarcEdit in their daily workflows will give the group a sense of how the tools can be used within our specific community and context. Terry will provide an overview of the software and then demonstrate some of the most common applications on a more granular level--batch-editing, regular expressions, file conversions and the linked data platform. Participants will have the opportunity to identify particular procedures of interest in advance of the workshop.

Note: Because this event will not take place in a technology classroom, we ask that participants bring their own laptops with MarcEdit installed. Instructions for installation will be circulated in advance of the conference.

This workshop supported by the ARLIS/NA Cataloging Advisory Committee and the Artist Files SIG.
