Computer-assisted analysis of large-scale data is of growing interest to scholars in the humanities and social sciences. Libraries are encountering complex legal and technical issues in their efforts to support researchers' text and data mining (TDM) activities. This presentation on strategies, approaches, and tools is the fifth in a series of CRL webinars to explore issues surrounding TDM. 

Presenters

Peter Leonard Director of the Digital Humanities Laboratory at Yale University, will draw on his expertise in digital and quantitative methods to illustrate various approaches to analyzing large sets of humanities data.

Lindsay King  Assistant Director for Public Services in the Haas Arts Library at Yale University, will introduce the Robots Reading Vogue project as a demonstration of these research applications for scholars in disciplines across campus.

 

CRL hosts webinars throughout the year. Participation is open to all librarians, staff, and faculty at CRL member institutions. Most are recorded and available for later access. More information on accessing webinars can be found under Membership.
