MarcEdit: Beyond the Basics
Many catalogers are making use of the ability to batch process MARC records with MarcEdit. Come learn the new features that have been added to this software since last year. This is a good opportunity to learn and share about how this tool is used in a real world setting.

This session will include the annual business meeting of theTechnical Services Interest Group (TSIG). The business meeting's agenda items include a chance to discuss areas of interest and concern and to fill in any needed positions on the Steering Committee. Changes to the Interest Group needed because of the changes in ATLA's bylaws will also be presented and discussed (and voted upon, if applicable).

Data Curation 101 for Theological Librarians
What counts as data within a theological context? How are theological data different from other forms of data? And what is data curation, and why should theological librarians care?

This workshop will explore the relevance of this quickly developing field within scholarly communications for theological librarians, and will also offer examples of practical and easy to implement solutions.

The presenters will introduce the basics of data curation, including the data curation lifecycle, data management plans, and digital preservation practices. Additionally, they will address questions about the ethics of data collection, the role of institutional review boards (IRBs), data licensing, and data privacy. Finally, they will demonstrate practical data visualization techniques to convert information theological libraries already collect into shareable datasets that can be used for making data-driven decisions about collections and access.
