Text and Data Mining Webinar for CRL


On July 29, Peter Leonard and I presented the webinar “Text and Data Mining in the Humanities and Social Sciences: Strategies and Tools” as part of the Center for Research Libraries‘ ongoing series on text and data mining. We had over 175 virtual attendees from a variety of institutions and fielded a number of excellent questions, many too complicated to answer via live chat or in the short Q&A sections (CRL added some of the chat questions into the video). It was great to see such interest in the topic. The range of questions provided a good reminder that we are still in the early days of establishing standards and practices for TDM, especially related to copyright and fair use. The CRL website has more information on the webinar, including our slides.
