Event description

Description

This free workshop will introduce you to text analysis research and the common methods and tools used in this emerging area of scholarship, with particular attention to the HathiTrust Research Center. It will provide a framework for how the library can support text data mining, as well as transferable skills useful for many other areas of digital scholarly inquiry.

Topics include:

  • Introduction to gathering, managing, analyzing, and visualizing textual data

  • Hands-on experience with text analysis tools, including the HTRC's off-the-shelf algorithms, datasets, such as the HTRC Extracted Features, and using the command line to run basic text analysis processes

No experience necessary! Attendees must bring a laptop.

The workshop will run from 9:00am to 4:00pm with a one hour break for lunch (provided).

Contact htrc_workshop@library.illinois.edu if you have questions.
