We’re pleased to announce that several free webinars are scheduled for the first three months of 2016. Mark your calendars!

Date/Time Speaker Title

19 February 2016 (18:00-19:00 UTC / 13:00-14:00 EST) Terry Reese Evolving MarcEdit: Leveraging Semantic Data in MarcEdit.
Library metadata is currently evolving — and whether you believe this evolution will lead to a fundamental change in how Libraries manage their data (as envisioned via BibFrame) or more of an incremental change (like RDA); one thing that is clear is the merging of traditional library data and semantic data.Over the next hour, I’d like to talk about how this process is impacting how MarcEdit is being developed, and look at some of the ways that Libraries can not just begin to embed semantic data into their bibliographic records right now — but also begin to new services around semantic data sources to improve local workflows and processes.
14 March 2016 (16:00-17:30 UTC / 11:00-12:30 EST Owen Stephens (Meta)data tools: Working with OpenRefine
OpenRefine is a powerful tool for analyzing, fixing, improving and enhancing data. In this session the basic functionality of OpenRefine will be introduced, demonstrating how it can be used to explore and fix data, with particular reference to the use of OpenRefine in the context of library data and metadata.

The registration link for each webinar will be communicated in advance. Many thanks to Alison Hitchens and the University of Waterloo for offering up their Adobe Connect instance to host the webinars.
