MarcEdit 5.0 uptake

By reeset / On / In Digital Libraries, MarcEdit, Programming

I don’t do it very often but its now been about a year since I formally posted MarcEdit 5.0 as beta and in the 12 months, the program has now been downloaded by 10, 021 unique users.  Not bad I guess.  Hopefully, when I take the program to 5.1 when the docs are completed, I’ll see less 4.6 downloads (there were still 3000+ downloads over last year — though the number of downloads has been ~10 per week over the past 3-3 1/2 months), so I’m hoping folks are starting to find things to make the switch worth while.  🙂

  1. From which site i may get the Marc Edit software to download. we undertook a larger bibliographic project on South Asia in collaboration with University of Chicago and we are using WinISIS a software developed by the UNESCO, but i encounter some difficulties with the MARC characters there so i need a good migration tool, any suggestion would be useful for us.

    Best,
