  • Terry Reese of Oregon State University had been developing an alternative program to the Library of Congress's MARCBreaker/MARCMakr program in the early 2000s. Around that time, 45,000 records in Oregon State University’s catalog were found to have erroneous call numbers. The need to correct them quickly and efficiently influenced the fast development of MarcEdit.
  • MarcEdit has a wealth of tools for metadata creation, editing, and harvesting. Many of these I haven’t used myself and the menus we’ll show you here do not cover all of the tools available in MarcEdit. We’ll show you more when we give you examples of how we’ve used MarcEdit. But, to give you an idea of the tools in MarcEdit, let’s take a quick look at the some of the menu options.
  • This is becoming more important as our records become more global.  The ability to convert records in Big-5 characterset to UTF8 or MARC8 or vice versa allow us to interact with the international community easier.
  • How the MARCEngine works – MarcEdit’s MARCEngine can heal certain record errors.  I like to talk about how to tell when that process has occurred and what kinds of errors it can correct as part of that process.
  • These are just some of the ways you might use MarcEdit. In a moment, we’ll give you some examples of work in which we’ve used MarcEdit. The Z39.50 client is great, though you have to have it set up to use it (talk to your system administrator). It provides another option for extracting records from your local system if a simple pull is all you need. You could also use it to search others’ catalogs.
  • Text files can be used to create MARC records. Terry Reese has said that he’s used the OCLC Xref reports after his institution’s Reclamation Project to create a brief record that included the local ID in his records and the OCLC number that has their holdings. He then used this file of records to overlay in his system so that the records would have the correct OCLC number that has their holdings. I’ve done something similar to create records that only had a LDR and an 856 in order to merge records with a new URL. I’ll talk about that in one of my projects. About Symphony’s Extract Keys for Marc Export: unfortunately, there are limitations with finding records with this tool. It’d be nice if it had the Search String option that is available in other reports. One way I’ve gotten around this is to use the List Bibliography report to isolate the records I want and, in my report’s output, I included the barcode number. I then captured all the barcode numbers and put them into the a text file as one paragraph, separating the numbers by commas, and pasted them into the Item IDs search box. I’ll now pass this on to Sharon who will begin demonstrating some examples of how we’ve used MarcEdit in our work places.
  • During preparation for Reclamation, we discovered that, of 37,000+ records for Early American Imprints, 7,000+ were missing URLs
  • In the Batch Editing Tools window you can see all the functions I used to copy and change the 926 to get it to isolating the volume number. During the Edit Subfield Data step, I included adding the base URL to precede the volume number http://opac.newsbank.com/select/evans/ I used the Replace function to remove the subfield c preceding the volume number so that it butted up to the base URL.
  • Deleting Records in Batch in Local Catalog and WorldCat Lehigh has a 200 title subscription to Safari Books Online Batch deletes: Delimited Text Translator to create brief MARC records (LDR,001), MarcEditor to change the LDR/05 to "d", WorkFlows Load Bibliographic Records report with "d" to delete
  • The Excel file came from my Engineering Librarian who manages our collection. She provided the ISBNs and titles that we were removing from the subscription. I then used the Symphony List Bibliography report to pull all our Safari titles (matching on the URL) and pulled the ISBNs, titles, and 001. I merged this data with the Excel file and matched on ISBN (as you see highlighted above). I then pulled the 001 of the matches to put through MarcEdit’s Delimited Text Translator.
  • Using the Delimited Text Translator, I was able to create a file of brief records that included a LDR, an 001 (which was based on my text file), and an 008. I changed the code in LDR/05 so that it would be a “d” and then used the Symphony report Load Bibliographic Records to delete those records. I then edited the text file to strip the ocm/ocn prefix. This file was then used in the Connexion Client’s Batch Holdings by OCLC Number tool (under the Batch menu) to delete our holdings from WorldCat.

    • 23. JUNE 13-15, 2011  LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA Thank You, Terry “Looking at the last two days (March 22 and 23rd) – MarcEdit was utilized by 2,351 unique users, across 59 countries. This surprises me – and is slightly humbling – to think that this many users have found and trust MarcEdit to help them with their daily work. It also helps me to validate the work that has gone into the development of this application.”
