Practical Technology for Archives (blog) Practical Technology for Archives is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal that focuses on pragmatic, practical applications of archival technical processes. Each issue includes how-to articles, shorter tips and techniques, brief demonstration videos, and, where appropriate, coding snippets and examples.  While the blog hasn’t been active in a while, some of the info is still useful.

OpenRefine (formerly Google Refine) is a powerful tool for working with messy data: cleaning it; transforming it from one format into another; and extending it with web services and external data. Please note that since October 2nd, 2012, Google is not actively supporting this project, which has now been rebranded to OpenRefine. Project development, documentation and promotion is now fully supported by volunteers.
