Description

As librarians, we work with an ever-increasing amount of data and metadata. However, these data are often messy, disorganized, and seemingly disparate from other caches of data. Free tools such as OpenRefine allow us to clean, organize, and connect data sets to one another – all without knowing how to write complicated code. In this presentation, I will demonstrate the refining I have undertaken to create better and more usable data sets.
