About Me

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

  1. Terry,

    Just in case no one said thank you today, THANKS! Between MARCedit and my collection of macros, I can just about get my job done in spite of my ILS.

    Have a great day,
