2 (Webinar) - Advanced Marcedit with Terry Reese

In 1999, MarcEdit started out as a simple MARC=>plain text translation utility.  Today, MarcEdit has become one of the more complete metadata edit suites available to librarians.  While the name MarcEdit has become a bit of a misnomer over the years (as MarcEdit now edits so much more data than simply MARC records), the program has and will continue to evolve to meet the past, present, and future metadata needs of the library community.

This webinar will take place on September 2, 2015 from 11am to 1:30pm, and costs $15 to attend. To register for this webinar visit the NY 3Rs Association, Inc's website.

Supervising Student Employees - a three-hour workshop designed to give you best-practices on advertising, recruiting, interviewing, and training student employees.
