Event description

Description

This free workshop for librarians and LIS professionals will introduce attendees 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 and HathiTrust Digital Library. The workshop curriculum and discussions will provide a framework for how librarians can support text data mining, as well as teach attendees about 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 Analytics' off-the-shelf algorithms and datasets, such as the HTRC Extracted Features;

  • Using the command line to run basic text analysis processes.

No experience necessary! Attendees do NOT need to be from HathiTrust member institutions. All attendees must bring a laptop.

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

Please contact htrc_workshop@library.illinois.edu if you have questions.

Funded by IMLS RE-00-15-0112-15.
