MarcEdit Webinar 1

Primary tabs

Monday, March 16, 2015 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

The CARLI Office is pleased to announce registration for an upcoming series of webinars on the free MARC utility MarcEdit. Terry Reese, the developer of MarcEdit, will present five sessions for the CARLI community during Spring 2015.

“MarcEdit has become one of the more complete metadata editing suites available to librarians.  While the name MarcEdit has become a bit of a misnomer over the years (as MarcEdit now edits so much more data than simply MARC records), the program has and will continue to evolve to meet the past, present, and future metadata needs of the library community. MarcEdit presently includes a very rich feature set targeted at making metadata translation and editing easier for both the beginner and advanced users.” -- From the website

CARLI invites library staff from any member institution to register as attendees of the live webinars. All sessions will be recorded and hosted on the CARLI website. CARLI and Mr. Reese recommend attending the first webinar, “Introduction to MarcEdit and Working with MARC Data,” before attending or viewing other sessions.

CARLI Staff have prepared an additional presentation on the use of MarcEdit in the I-Share environment. CARLI recommends that staff from I-Share member libraries view this session, particularly if they have not used MarcEdit previously. The presentation is available here.
