Making global change to title in metadata?

Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):5.7

I've added titles in the metadata to over 200 photos that are part of a book I am working on. I need to make a spelling change to approx. 20% of these titles. Is there a way to search and change globally, without going to each title one-by-one?
