MarcEdit Workshop

  • 24 Jun 2010
  • 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM
  • National Geographic Society


  • Special price for members
MarcEdit is a freely downloadable metadata software suite, designed specifically for large-batch record processing.  Functions include batch editing MARC records, character set conversions and record extractions. MarcEdit provides a number of useful functions that can be used to simplify database maintenance activities, as well as provide libraries with an invaluable tool for customizing and correcting vendor records before introducing them to one’s database. The presentation will also discuss topics related to the processing of XML metadata, as well as MarcEdit’s built-in OAI metadata harvester – which provides libraries a simplified method for generating MARC records from OAI repositories (like DSpace, Fedora or CONTENTdm).


Terry Reese Jr., Gray Family Chair for Innovative Library Services, Oregon State University, and creator of the MarcEdit program.
