Title: Text and Data Mining in the Humanities and Social Sciences: Strategies and Tools, presented by Peter Leonard and Lindsay King of Yale.
In the webinar Leonard and King discussed reasons for the current interest in TDM, what makes a good project, and the implications for libraries of this growing research trend. They also demonstrated Yale’s Robots Reading Vogue platform, showing various projects based on the ProQuest database. They responded to significant questions and observations from webinar participants, including how to get good quality OCR from non-western alphabets or earlier fonts, the relative quality of OCR from various news databases, and what tools to use for topic modeling.
The webinar is now available via the CRL’s YouTube channel.
