I have limited experience working with PBCore, METS, and Premis. Continue reading “Metadata”


I use MacroExpress extensively for both my routine work and to automate aspects of my job. I’ve given several presentations about the uses of MacroExpress within the context of an academic library.


I have written many custom select queries within the Voyager environment and have shared my queries through the statewide consortia (CARLI).


I work as the SFX administrator for my library where I have improved performance and reduced errors to under 1% by updating the underlying KnowledgeBase and improving the user interface. I also serve on a statewide committee (CARLI’s SFX System Committee) that researches and promotes best practices for this tool.


I frequently use MarcEdit to batch edit electronic resources records and have experience adding URL proxy information, adding and changing call numbers, and modifying field information. I’ve further automated this work into automated “task lists” which save processing time and ensure consistency. See posts tagged with ‘MarcEdit’.
