It is possible to re-normalise all the data in the OLIB database from within OLIB Web. Set the Renormalisation Time field to the date and time on which you would like the re-normalisation process to begin. The process will begin at the specified date/time, and continue until it is completed.

OLIB updates the Renormalisation Results field to indicate when it ran and how long it took to complete, and clears the Renormalisation Time field.
