Clean up as in:
1. Kill the dead links.
2. Make sure the music is properly attributed to the correct artist.
3. Make sure the music is labeled as the correct version.
4. Identify unidentified songs.
5. Fill in the artwork and correct artwork on my existing songs.

For album art, I prefer manually adding higher quality artwork from sites such as Album Art Exchange.

Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes is a great resource for managing your iTunes tags and files.

Here are a few scripts that I've found particularly useful:
Append To Selected Tag v1.1
Artist to Album Artist v2.0
Clipboard to Lyrics Scripts v1.0.1
Clipboard to Multi-Tracks Lyrics v1.0
File Renamer
Filenames to Song Names
Gather Up the One-Hits v2.3
List MIAs v1.2
Move Files To Folder... v1.0
No Lyrics to Playlist v2.0
Proper English Title Capitalization
Remove n Characters From Front or Back v3.0
Replay Last Bit v2.0
Search/Replace Tag Text
This Tag, That Tag Scripts v2.0
Track Parser v1.3.1
Tracks Without Artwork to Playlist v3.3
Also, know that for iTunes to sort albums together properly, all tracks of an album must have identical information in the following fields:
  • Album
  • Album Artist
  • Sort Album
  • Sort Album Artist
