Digitization brings about new ways of analyzing data from cultural heritage areas. Automatic error detection, as input to semiautomatic error correction, is one type of analysis that can be found high on the priority list of cultural heritage data managers and researchers. We describe a general approach to cleaning cultural heritage databases. We present four case studies on databases from different cultural heritage institutions, and describe an information system in which we embed our error detector in a larger framework, enabling researchers to access, check, and correct their data more easily than before.
