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.

Plans are afoot for the second annual Research Information event, Challenges in the Scholarly Publishing Cycle 2018.
This one-day conference (Monday 3 December 2018 – London Art House), in partnership with Info International Ltd, will use the results of an industry survey (Challenges in Scholarly Publishing 2018) as the starting point for a day of interactive workshops – with each delegate attending focused sessions on publisher, librarian and academic perspectives. Delegates will have a unique opportunity to learn from other stakeholder groups, and take away practical strategic and operational action points back to their own institution.
All delegates will receive a copy of the full survey results on the day, as well as the opportunity to view the results online a few days before the event to help prepare.
The 2017 report is available to view/purchase here.
The event is hosted by Research Information, and chaired by editor Tim Gillett.
Europa Science (publisher of Research Information) managing director Warren Clark will deliver the opening presentation, reviewing the results of the 2018 survey.
Delegates will then divide into three groups, attending three discussions in turn, each focusing on the challenges faced by researchers, publishers and librarians respectively. Each of these groups will comprise representatives from each of those three stakeholder groups, to ensure lively and balanced discussions!
The chairs for our three discussions are as follows:
Researcher Focus – Anthony Watkinson: principal consultant at CIBER Research, associate of Oxford Brookes University and honorary lecturer at University College London.
Publisher Focus – Audrey McCulloch: chief executive officer, ALPSP
Librarian Focus – Helen Blanchett, scholarly communications subject specialist, JISC
At the end of the day, delegates will reconvene for a Q&A session, in which our three chairs will summarise the themes raised in their respective groups, with a further chance to ask questions and extend the discussion…
