Text and Data Mining Basics for Beginners Using Open Source, Off-the-Shelf Tools

Digital humanists and historians are expanding the use of digitized materials in new and exciting directions. As the availability of large collections of OCR-ed documents and associated metadata become available, researchers interested in using computational algorithms to find patterns across hundreds or even thousands of documents look to archives not only to understand these methods, but also to provide documents and corpuses for analysis. In this workshop, you will get your feet wet in the theory and methods of text and data mining, preview an off-the-shelf tool that performs text mining on a set of documents, and discover how to translate knowledge of these new research methods into strategies and programs that extend digital collections to new audiences. You are encouraged to bring your own laptops to participate in hands-on exercises.
Who Should Attend?
Anyone curious or interested in text and data mining research methods. No coding skills required!
What Should You Know Already?
No text mining experience necessary
