MarcEdit 7 included a number of new tools and options; from a new focus on accessibility, to an emphasis on deeper integrations with other tools found in the library ecosystem. However, three new developments in MarcEdit 7 were specifically designed to remove significant technical barriers when need to:

* Cluster data for editing or identification purposes
* Process XML data from unknown or known formats
* Handle linked data reconciliation

This webinar will briefly look at each of these new functions, introducing users to some of the new ways MarcEdit helps libraries work with their data. These topics, and more, will be covered in more detail during NASIGs annual conference in Atlanta.


Terry Reese serves as the Head of Digital Initiatives for The Ohio State University Libraries. During his career in Libraries, Terry has worked throughout the Libraries…from interlibrary loan, reference and instruction, processing, cataloging, and finally digital initiatives. While at Oregon State University, Terry held the prestigious Gray Family Chair for Innovative Library services; leading various grants and open source projects related to discovery and findability of resources.

Since April 2013, Terry has called Columbus home, working with The Ohio State University Libraries to redevelop their digital library infrastructure, and reimagine the Library not only as a destination for collections and services, but as a digital platform that can both support and generate new research.

Terry is a sought-after speaker and instructor related to issues of discovery, digital preservation, and library metadata. His current research is focused on the ways in which libraries can leverage semantic web techniques to transform legacy library metadata into something new, and exciting. This work intersects with his development of MarcEdit, a metadata suite that is used tens of thousands of librarians annually from around the world. The project serves as not only as a platform to conduct research related to metadata reconciliation and the intersections of semantic data and library data, but as a platform for re-imagining library metadata workflows and processing.
