MarcEdit User-Group Meeting @ALA, June 26, 2015

By reeset / On / In MarcEdit


Time: 6:00 – 7:30 pm, Friday, June 26, 2015
Place: Marriott Marquis (map)
Room: Pacific H, capacity: 30


The MarcEdit user community is large and diverse and honestly, I get to meet far too few community members.  This meeting has been put together to give members of the community a chance to come together and talk about the development road map, hear about the work to port MarcEdit to the Mac, and give me an opportunity to hear from the community.  I’ll talk about future work, areas of potential partnership, as well as hearing from you what you’d like to see in the program to make your metadata live’s a little easier.  If this sounds interesting to you — I really hope to see you there.


A *big* thank you to John Chapman and OCLC for allowing this to happen.  As folks might guess, finding space at ALA can be a challenging and expensive endeavor so when I originally broached the idea with OCLC, I had pretty low expectations.  But they truly went above and beyond any reasonable expectation, working with the hotel and ALA so this meeting could take place.  And why they didn’t ask for it — they have my personal thanks and gratitude.  If you can attend the event, or heck, wish you could have but your schedule made it impossible — make sure you let OCLC know that this was appreciated.

    1. Probably not. This is going to be a pretty low tech production. However, maybe I can at least screen capture the roadmap/port discussion. No promises, but we’ll see.

  1. I am in the second category, wishing I could attend but unable, but I think this meeting is an excellent idea and am happy that you and OCLC could make it possible. Should we contact John Chapman, specifically, with thanks?

    1. I know that John will be making the rounds at ALA, so definitely give him a high five if you see him, otherwise, yes, drop him a line.
