Tutorial: GOKb Data Ingest Using OpenRefine


This tutorial will teach you how to use the OpenRefine application, along with the GOKb custom extension, to normalize and validate title lists collected from vendor web sites. Once validation is complete, you will be able to ingest data into GOKb.


You will need a Windows or Mac computer with a web browser, OpenRefine, and the GOKb extensions installed. You will also need content provider title list data in a delimited format (e.g., .xlsx, .csv, .tsv).
