Reworking an established library

How do I update metadata and artwork for albums and tracks in an established beets library? Do I use IMPORT? if so, what switches? Or is there a plugin or other command?

NB: I found the documentation unclear about this, so thanks in advance.

The -L argument to import will import content already in the library, with the arguments as a query rather than a path on disk.

I use beet mbsync to update metadata on stuff already in my library. I don’t know if that will also check for updated artwork though.
