Jeffrey Mudge and David Malone (Wheaton College)<br />
The print/analog library transition to thousands upon thousands of digital resources has brought with it the need to manage associated URLs. Part of the management is to address issues of resource transience and attempts to create persistence. The Handle System is a specification for assigning, managing, and resolving persistent identifiers for digital objects. This presentation will provide background on Handle as well as some user tools that Wheaton College has created to simplify the creation, management, and deletion of Handles.<br />

Brittany Adams (Wheaton College) <br />
Code4LIb has many full-fledged coders, but there are others who are new to the library coding environment and may have limited access to common tools and operating systems often found in the coder's toolbox. As someone new to coding, Brittany Adams will show how PowerShell, which is part of the Windows OS, can be applied to various metadata projects. PowerShell can serve as the entry point for those unwilling or unable to dive in the deep-end of the Linux pool.<br />
