Come and join us for a workshop that will demonstrate how public domain texts, scholarly articles, government documents, and historic collections can be text mined using the resources provided by the University Library. The workshop will feature the data mining possibilities of several collections:
• the HathiTrust Research Center Portal (http://analytics.hathitrust.org), which features more than three million digitized items in the public domain;
• JSTOR Data for Research, a free service for researchers wishing to analyze content on JSTOR; and
• two primary source collections -- African American Communities and Race Relations in America -- that can be mined through a request to the publisher Adam Matthew Digital, Ltd.
There will be time to discuss and brainstorm about the possibilities of other resources of interest to workshop participants. Light refreshments will be served.
