The Getty Vocabulary Program's OpenRefine Reconciliation Service: From Users to Contributors (DCMI)
"This webinar will be a tutorial on the Getty Vocabulary Program’s new OpenRefine reconciliation service for aligning data records to ULAN, AAT, and TGN, including matching terms, cleaning data, and grabbing URIs from the Vocabularies’ Linked Open Data. The first half of the presentation will be a general overview of how the service works and its benefits, and the second will focus on advanced techniques.
1) Understanding the Getty Vocabulary Program's reconciliation service's basic functions
2) Learning how to map existing terms to the Getty Vocabularies
