MarcEdit 5.0 Url Checker

By reeset / On / In MarcEdit

This is one of those tools that I’m going to be working on a bit more (I want to setup a thread pool to speed up the processing), but for now, it works ok. The process allows you to specify within a MARC record what http elements you’d like to check. You check all (and that’s URLs in any record), some or by field. The result is currently a web page that looks like this:

verify_url.PNG

I’m going to be integrating the results with the MarcEditor to allow direct, inline editing of elements when you need to make changes. I just didn’t get that completed tonight.

So where is this function? Look at the main window, under add-ins/verify url. The XSLT that renders the output is found in the XSLT directory, so you can customize it to meet your needs.
