This presentation will show just how useful this tool can be for local database projects like the Minneapolis Community & Technical College Zine Collection as well as messy MARC records in your ILS. The world of metadata has been rapidly changing and it's time to get your data out of the 90s, clean it up and be ready to link to the wider world of information!
