  • Introductory OpenRefine Workshop

    The Brock University Digital Scholarship Lab invites you to attend a workshop on the powerful data management tool OpenRefine.  If you work with data in spreadsheets, you will find this tool particularly useful. OpenRefine allows you to work with CSV data in intuitive and efficient ways.  Spot trends in your results, ensure accuracy, and perform transformations to all rows of data based on formulas.  OpenRefine quickly takes messy data and transforms it into a more comprehensive format.  This tutorial starts at the very beginning and provides hands on examples for you to explore.

    When: Monday, November 12th, 2018, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
    Where: Classroom A (ST228), James A. Gibson Library, Brock University
