Digital Brown Bag | Why We All Could Use a Little OpenRefine (Five Reasons from a Humanities Scholar)
Many of us have messy research data that need some organization and analysis but that do not necessarily justify committing to advanced relational database solutions. OpenRefine is an amazing tool that can help fill that gap – enabling insight into data without requiring a lot of extra work (and even saving time and effort in the process). In this Digital Brown Bag talk, Classical Studies doctoral candidate Adrian Linden-High offers five reasons for choosing OpenRefine, using examples from his own research to illustrate its value.
Digital Brown Bags (hosted by Duke Libraries' Digital Scholarship & Publishing Services) are informal presentations and talks with Duke faculty or grad students about their digital project work, with the goal of making digital project work more familiar and possible. All are welcome! Registration is encouraged but not required.
