MarcEdit 7 Advanced Tools

Currently Offered Sessions

No sessions currently scheduled.

Description

MarcEdit has changed! MarcEdit 7 has been recently released, and it comes with a new set of tools and options. This workshop will provide an overview of what’s changed, as well as take a closer look at some new tools (the MARC Cluster Tools, the XML Profilers, Updated SPARQL Browser) and better understand how existing tools (like task processing) changed to support your workflows. The workshop will assume a basic level of familiarity with the application in order to focus on topics like Linked Data usage, global editing (using regular expressions), and ILS integration with Alma.

PRESENTER BIO
Terry Reese serves as the Head of Digital Initiatives for The Ohio State University Libraries, since 2013, to redevelop their digital library infrastructure, and reimagine the Library not only as a destination for collections and services, but as a digital platform that can both support and generate new research. His current research is focused on the ways in which libraries can leverage semantic web techniques to transform legacy library metadata into something new, and exciting. This work intersects with his development of MarcEdit, a metadata suite that is used tens of thousands of librarians annually from around the world.
