Bio: Dom Bortruex is the Manager of the Monographic FastCat Unit at Yale University. As an adjunct in Kent State University’s Master of Library and Information Science program, he teaches courses to prepare future librarians for the evolving field of information science. Dom is also pursuing a Doctorate in Education (Ed.D) in Educational Leadership at Southern Connecticut State University where he researches how academic library directors communicate library impact on issues of institutional importance to provosts for the purpose of securing  funding.

Workshop overview: This all-day workshop will provide hands-on instruction to automate aspects of the creation, manipulation, and enhancement of library metadata using MarcEdit. The workshop is intended for beginner and intermediate users of MarcEdit. Participants will learn about MarcEdit’s basic and advanced-level functions, including but not limited to batch editing tools, automating task lists, regular expressions, and the Linked Data tool. Through hands-on exercises based on large scale metadata clean-up projects, participants will gain practical experience applying these functions and tools to tabular data and large batches of invalid MARC records. Participants will leave the session with demonstrated proficiency in MarcEdit and reusable, automated task lists and tools to improve metadata at their own institutions.

Learning Environment: This interactive workshop will be hosted on Zoom. Attendees will view demonstrations and participate in instructor-led exercises. A course website containing the schedule, source files, exercises, and supplementary materials will be available for participants
