This introductory-level workshop will allow students to acquire hands-on experience using MarcEdit for common tasks in cataloguing environments, including copy-cataloguing and batch record modification.
No prior-knowledge is assumed for cataloguing and/or the MARC standard, although some familiarity with MARC would be helpful. At student’s own discretion, feel free to look at the MARC standard ahead of the workshop (http://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/).
- Copy-cataloguing using Z39.50 in MarcEdit
- Basic record modifications (e.g. adding/deleting fields and subfields)
- Basic knowledge of regular expressions
