An introduction to the MARC record editing software MarcEdit

Automating Tasks

In addition to offering options for editing records, MarcEdit allows users to save particular operations in a task or a script so that they can be performed on multiple records without manually performing each edit. While many functions are available within this framework, some will have to be done manually. The task manager tends to be more user friendly and include a wider array of functions, though the script wizard may allow for more control and customization of tasks, providing the user is able to code in VBScript or PERL.
