At UT Libraries, current metadata workflows for electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs)  require catalogers to create records in separate systems concurrently: (1) Dublin Core for the DSpace institutional repository via ETD management software Vireo and (2) MARC in OCLC Connexion for the library catalog. In the spring of 2016, UT Libraries’ Cataloging & Metadata Services began exploring the capabilities of Vireo’s batch export feature as a means to streamline the work.

This 24x7 presentation will focus on UT Libraries’ envisioned ETD batch editing workflow using the Vireo 3 MARC export feature, MarcEdit Tools, and Regular Expressions. Lingering issues and recommendations for Vireo 4 export features will also be covered.
