Introduction to MarcEdit

Event Type: Technology Workshop
Date: 7/14/2010
Start Time: 9:30 AM
End Time: 12:00 PM
Description:
 MarcEdit is a freely available shareware program that can be used to edit of MARC format records in batches prior to loading into or after extracting from a MARC compatible library automation system. It can be used to delete, add or modify MARC fields in a batch of records. MarcEdit can also be used to break up large files of MARC records into smaller files or to join small files of MARC records into a single file.
This workshop will offer an introduction to the process of obtaining and installing the software and working with basic functions of MARCEdit. Hands-on activities will include using MARCEdit to examine and review MARC format files and editing records to add, delete, and modify MARC fields. There will also be a demonstration of how to use the MARCEdit tool for downloading MARC records from publicly available sources.
The formal session will be from 9:30 am - noon but participants are offered the option to continue hands-on activities and exploration of the program into the afternoon. Please plan on bringing a lunch if you think you would like to continue the session. Additional CE credit will be available for any time spent beyond the formal session.
