Terry Reese, the developer of MarcEdit, gave a presentation and hosted a Q&A at the recent American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) conference in Washington, D.C. It was great to hear him speak about his “magic wand for MARC records“.
One of the questions raised at the Q&A session dealt with moving data from one field and replacing it with another. The example was moving the date from 260 subfield ‘c’ to 008/07-14. Terry blogged about this and describes the procedure at Terry’s Worklog.
This “sadly not documented” feature should prove to be a very useful MarcEdit function. Thanks Terry!
