NISO Webinar: Text Mining: Digging Deep for Knowledge
Date: Wednesday, November 18, 2015
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. Eastern time
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
With the digital revolution, the ability to search vast amounts of information for specific bits of data has increased exponentially with more and more previously hard-copy only books and information being digitized and made available online. There are many organizations working to digitize content for the benefit of researchers and others. For example, HathiTrust is a partnership of organizations that offers digitized information from libraries all over the world. Data mining partnerships between university libraries and vendors will hope to bring millions of books and periodicals to the fingertips of researchers.
In this webinar, presenters will talk about the benefits and challenges to text mining and its impact on the library and information community.
Confirmed topics and speakers are:
- Text Mining and the Research Library: The Humanities and Beyond
- Bernie Reilly, President, Center for Research Libraries (CRL)
- Enriching the Social Sciences Through Text Mining
- Alan Maloney, Senior Product Analyst, Sage Publications
- The HathiTrust Research Center: Enabling New Knowledge Through Shared Infrastructure - Robert McDonald - HathiTrust Research Center Executive committee member; Associate Dean for Library Technologies, Indiana University
