Open Refine Workshop

Digitization can provide far greater access to archival documents, but their discoverability via full text searches may be hampered by error-laden optical character recognition (OCR). Correcting them manually is unrealistically time-consuming but there are tools that can help! In this workshop, we will use OpenRefine – a spreadsheet-like software often used for creating or editing metadata – to accelerate the finding and correction of spelling errors introduced through the OCR process.


Devon Mordell has a Master of Archival Studies from the University of British Columbia and currently works as an educational developer at McMaster University after several years in digital archiving roles. She teaches workshops on digital scholarship topics such as online exhibit creation and computational text analysis, and has presented internationally on archives as data.
