MarcEdit 5.0 refresh

By reeset / On / In MarcEdit

A quick refresh that corrected a few small problems that had been reported with the Deduplication utility in the MarcEditor, a small issue in the Z39.50 Client and the batch utility. Unfortunately, I’ve been a little busy working on a few other things — but I think I’ll be able to start pushing through the few remaining issues now that I’m pretty much finished. Oh, and I haven’t decided yet — but I had to create a simple METS generator for a project that we are working on — if I can figure out how to work it into MarcEdit, I’ll include it. Basically, it lets you generate some metadata and then creates a METS binder for a document (we’ve been scanning books and needed a way to tie the full res pages together outside of the Dspace access PDF).

Per usual, the updated setup is at: MarcEdit50_Setup.exe.

  1. Dear Terry,

    For the deduplication utility, when the records are removed, where are they removed to? Is it possible to add an alternative that the duplicates are removed to another MARCEdit file? It is sometimes necessary to check if the records are really duplicates. Also there may be situations where we would like to merge the duplicates from two different database vendors.

    Thanks in advance.


  2. At this point — it just removes the duplicate items — but I could allow you to pipe items into a separate file. I’ll see what I can do.


  3. Terry, thanks very much again, and apologize for replying so late. Any good news on the deduplication utility?
