Finishing up my #SummerSchool/#WinterSchool talk "Meeting MARC: the 50-year-old data format for library records" - something we're still using today.
That'll be on Tuesday at 10am Eastern!
Because I only have 15 minutes, I won't be doing a super super deep dive, just an intro. But I hope that'll make it interesting for non-practitioners!
Whether you're using a public library, an academic library, etc., you're almost certainly seeing data that's encoded as MARC, still, even though it's both changed a lot and not a lot since the 1960s!
SO COME RIDE ON MY MAGIC SCHOOL BUS.
glammr.us is a space for folks interested in productive conversation about, well, galleries, libraries, archives, museums, memory work and records. It is pronounce “glamorous” as our work are often charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way. Sometimes it is also full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity (oh, yes). It is also inspired by Toys’R’us to showcase the fun playful side of glammr.us tooters. But you don't necessarily have to only post about GLAMMR-related topics, bring your whole self. Talk about fun things you saw, your exciting day or even your struggles. Many of us are Twitter refugees looking for an inclusive and community supported approach to social media.
