Session 4: Working with Spreadsheets and Open Refine, Wednesday 24th January, 10-4pm (Pip Willcox and Iain Emsley) 20
This workshop is designed for anyone who works with spreadsheets and wants to learn how to explore that data more efficiently and consistently. No prior experience is required. The hands-on workshop teaches basic concepts, skills, and tools for working more effectively and reproducibly with your data. We will cover data organization in spreadsheets and OpenRefine for managing data. By the end of the workshop participants will be able to manage and analyze data effectively and be able to apply the tools and approaches directly to their ongoing research.
The workshop draws on lessons prepared by Data Carpentry and adapted by the trainers for use with Early English Books Online Text Creation Partnership data.
The methods that you will learn will be applicable to work in any field that uses spreadsheets. The EEBO-TCP subject matter we will use may be of particular interest to people working with library or early modern data.
DH@Manchester gratefully acknowledges the assistance of Oxford University’s Centre for Digital Scholarship and the Reproducible Research Oxford project in delivering this workshop.
Participants are requested to bring a laptop. To work with spreadsheets, you will need an application such as Microsoft Excel, Mac Numbers, or OpenOffice.org. If you don’t have a suitable program installed, you might like to use LibreOffice, a free, open source spreadsheet program.
