Got messy data?  Open Refine is the tool you never knew you needed.

This Library Carpentry lesson introduces people working in library- and information-related roles to working with data in OpenRefine (OR). At the conclusion of the lesson you will understand what the OR software does and how to use the OR software to work with data files. It covers using OR to tidy messy data and normalise it for use in other databases and programs, how to 'clean' data in a reproducible way, and how it interacts with datasets through APIs and some simple coding. This lesson will help Librarians support data rich research transparently and openly.
