Cleaning Messy Data

Do the occasional misspellings, extra spaces, random punctuation, weird capitalization or different styles of entering data plague your data consistency and accuracy? Messy data are a problem for data retrieval, interoperability, indexing or discovery. OpenRefine (formerly Google Refine) is a tool made to help you clean up messy data. OpenRefine is also a tool to transform data or begin to implement linked data. This workshop will introduce you to the basics of OpenRefine. If you have sample data to play with, by all means bring that in the form of an excel spreadsheet (i.e. .xsl or .xslx format). If you don't have sample data, no need to worry, as we'll have sample spreadsheets for you to clean up.

Please download OpenRefine before attending the workshop. This is a bring your own device workshop.

Publishing & Curating Online Content with Wordpress and Omeka: The Basics

Instructor: Susana Aho

As our portfolios, research, resumes, work, and art make their way onto digital spaces, it is important to learn about different platforms for displaying content on the web. Two great options, especially for scholars, are WordPress and Omeka. Both provide open-source content-management systems for creating and publishing digital work. Omeka is designed particularly for curating online exhibits and digital humanities projects. We will go over the very basics of publishing content on both platforms. Perfect for beginners - no design/development experience required.
