Cleaning Data with OpenRefine Part 1 | University Libraries

February 14, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EST

Data sets often have problematic content such as formatting inconsistencies and incomplete elements that are beyond the capabilities of spreadsheet programs like Excel to deal with easily. OpenRefine is a powerful tool for working with messy data. It will help you do things like standardize date formatting; split up cells with multiple authors into separate cells; match local data up to other data sets; and enhance a data set with data from other sources. Part 1 of this workshop will focus on the basic functions of OpenRefine. Part 2 will focus on advanced features like fetching data from APIs, reconciling data by comparing it to external data sets, and looking at extensions to OpenRefine to perform other tasks.
