Text and Data Mining Developing Policies and Practices in a Changing Discovery Landscape
At a recent Association of Research Libraries event, Professor Geoffrey Boulton of the University of Edinburgh indicated the most critical areas of scientific practice - that is, text and data-mining (TDM) practices - were in danger of being curtailed by content providers' licensing agreements.
From the perspective of scientists, TDM is known as non-consumptive research, a phrase coined originally by Google in the context of its Google Books project. This means the electronic information resources licensed by institutions are being used as a foundational test bed for seeking patterns in data through the use of algorithms and similar computational tools. Individual works, whether articles or books, are neither examined (as in read) nor displayed.
While some content providers have developed policies and practices for enabling this form of research, TDM represents an area of increasing uncertainty for others, operating across a spectrum of scholarly and research environments.
In this NFAIS Virtual Workshop, our distinguished set of presenters will explore the nature - and offer their sense of the future - around this fast-changing and increasingly important discovery methodology.
Who should attend this NFAIS Workshop: scholarly researchers, publishers, librarians, government officials, scholarly society and foundation staff, information services consultants
