Text Mining with HathiTrust: An Introduction for Librarians (University of Florida, 10/1)
This day-long workshop will introduce librarians to computational text and data mining, with hands-on examples drawn from HathiTrust data and HathiTrust Research Center analysis tools. Attendees will learn how scholars employ this research method, as well as the types of research questions that can be explored using it. Particular attention will be given to the librarian’s role in supporting text and data mining throughout the research process. Attendees can expect to leave with an understanding of:
- The text data available from HathiTrust
- The tools and services of the HathiTrust Research Center, including freely available datasets, plug-and-play tools, and secure computing environments for advanced researchers
- The ways librarians can support text and data mining research
The workshop will be particularly useful for librarians who would like to become more familiar with HathiTrust research opportunities or who would like to gain a deeper understanding of the current state of academic text and data mining research. No experience is required! While the workshop will address technical topics, the content has been designed to be approachable for librarians from a variety of backgrounds. Attendees should bring a laptop.
Location: Scott Nygren Scholars Studio, Library West, University of Florida
