OLAC MarcEdit Workshop

OLAC Workshop: Introduction to MarcEdit

Library Carpentry is made by people working in library- and information-related roles to help you:

  • automate repetitive, boring, error-prone tasks

  • create, maintain and analyze sustainable and reusable data

  • work effectively with IT and systems colleagues

  • better understand the use of software in research

  • and much more…

Library Carpentry introduces you to the fundamentals of computing and provides you with a platform for further self-directed learning. For more information on what we teach and why, please see the paper "Library Carpentry: software skills training for library professionals".
