There are some features of MarcEdit which allow users to harvest records using OAI-PMH and query databases within MarcEdit using z39.50. Each of these applications will be discussed in this section in their own subsection, but were gathered here in the interest of clarity. There are also tools for working with linked data whereby existing records could have URIs linking to authority records maintained by the Library of Congress or OCLC. Because this is a relatively narrow and unique function, it has been grouped into record harvesting but has its own section in the guide.
This list from the Library of Congress gives the information needed to configure MarcEdit to connect to each server on the list.
NOTE: Despite being able to configure the server, support for Z39.50 varies by institution. As a result. it may be that the information entered is correct but you still may not be able to harvest records.
