W03: Getting Started with MarcEdit 7: New Tools, New Models, New Automation Opportunities
MarcEdit 7 represents the next generation in the MarcEdit application development.  Over the course of six months, MarcEdit has been redeveloped and reimagined to allow for greater automation, data manipulation, and integration opportunities.  MarcEdit 7 development focused on:

  • Simplifying workflows and help
  • A focus on software accessibility
  • Deeper integrations with OCLC and the existing next generation ILS ecosystem
  • Development of new global editing tools
  • Support for working direction with knowledge-graphs and semantic data
  • Development of new paradigms for crosswalking metadata

At its core, this workshop will focus on editing library data…specifically how attendees can quickly create, editing, and modify large batches of library data.  The workshop will put a premium on automation, looking at ways in which users can automate workflows and processes.  At the same time, given the recent release of MarcEdit 7, the workshop will highlight many of the new tools like the new metadata profiler to enable simplified non-MARC to MARC (or non-MARC) transformations and the new data clustering functionality designed to help make sense of messy data, as well as enhancements to the linked data toolkit.  Working with real-data, and answering real-world problems, the workshop will seek to provide attendees with the knowledge and necessary toolkit to enhance and improve their processes at their home institutions.

This workshops will be available to in-person attendees only and requires an additional ticket. It will not be available via the Online Conference.
