Are you a librarian, researcher or student interested in learning more about digital scholarship methods and text mining? Register for our all-day June 6 tutorial at JCDL 2019, which will introduce library and information professionals to text mining and related digital scholarship methods, with a focus on the tools and data from the HathiTrust Research Center. This workshop is part of a series supported by the IMLS-funded project "Digging Deeper, Reaching Further: Libraries Empowering Users to Mine the HathiTrust Digital Library Resources." The aims of the DDRF workshops are to empower researchers and librarians to become more conversant in digital scholarship and engage with digital projects at their institutions.
This workshop will introduce attendees to the HathiTrust Research Center and its tools and services for computational text analysis research. The HTRC leverages the scope and scale of the HathiTrust Digital Library collection to create opportunities for researchers to perform text data mining on subsets of the corpus. Attendees will develop skills that will allow them to conduct basic text analysis research using HathiTrust data, learn techniques for engaging with scholars on their text data mining research, and explore strategies for computational access to large-scale digital collections.
Attendees can choose to just attend this workshop independently, or the full 2019 JCDL. More information is available on the JCDL 2019 website: https://2019.jcdl.org/
