Have you ever wanted to update a full file of catalog records at one time? Sick of making the same change to a number of records one at a time? Do you wish there was a quicker, better way? You are in luck! Libraries of all types load vendor records into their catalogs. Using the free software program MarcEdit catalogers can preview and edit records from a variety of vendors before loading them into their catalogs. This helps ensure the best results for library patrons. New to MarcEdit? This session provides an introduction -- how to open a MARC record, how to create a task, how to save your edits -- and offers specific examples of MarcEdit features used to get vendor records in shape for loading. Examples will include records from vendors such as OverDrive, Lynda.com, LearningExpress, as well as Gale Virtual Reference Library.
