If you’ve found this page, you are probably either bored, family or someone with an unhealthy interest in metadata or metadata tools. That’s alright. My name is Terry Reese and I am a librarian at The Ohio State University. Presently, my current title is Head of Digital Initiatives. So what do I do? Well, essentially, I work with my colleagues at Ohio State University to build large scale discovery and preservation systems. This gives me a lot of freedom to do research, write grants and try lots of new things. Additionally, I do a bit of R&D work for the library community. I’m the author of a number of programs that, if you worked in a Technical Services department in the library, you probably have heard of and maybe even have used. Probably the most widely used tool that I have developed is MarcEdit. This is my baby. It’s used fairly regularly by about a lot of people all over the world. Written entirely in C#, it provides librarians with a free MARC editing platform that includes a full suite of XML related tools specific to the library community.
So who am I? Good question. If you’d like to learn a bit more about my work, projects, or inquire about speaking or teaching — check out my professional presence at: http://reeset.net
