Reconciling Metadata with OpenRefine

June 4 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Does your metadata contain values that don’t align with controlled vocabularies commonly used in the GLAM sector? Learn how to reconcile metadata with OpenRefine, a popular data cleaning tool that can help you with metadata prep for DPLA. The Outreach & Assessment and Metadata Working Groups invite you to join this session, which builds upon February’s Introduction to OpenRefine presentation. Attendees will:

– Understand the basics of reconciliation with OpenRefine

– See examples of reconciliation with commonly used vocabularies (such as the Art & Architecture Thesaurus™)

– Get pointers on untangling data, such as removing duplicate values

This meeting will be led by Helen Baer, Digital Projects Librarian at Colorado State University, a member of the Plains to Peaks Collective. No software pre-installation will be required by participants. Please feel free to reach out to Helen if you have specific use cases or controlled vocabularies you’d like her to focus on at this event.
