Open Refine cleans up messes

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

OpenRefine (formerly Google Refine) is a tool for cleaning up messy data, but it is also well-suited to cross-linking different identifiers through their metadata entries. I will share some experiences in using OpenRefine to interlink GRID, ISNI, Wikidata, and our own internal institution identifiers. This matching process also highlights metadata errors (including duplicates and incorrect merges) in the different sources, and can help improve data quality on all sides.
