Helping Librarians "Dig Deeper" in the HathiTrust Library [Munch & Mull Digital Scholarship discussion group]

Harriet Green and Eleanor Dickson (UIUC Libraries), in their recent article on the “Digging Deeper, Reaching Further” project to develop a text-mining curriculum for librarians, call attention to the skills gaps of researchers and librarians, who both struggle to address the questions that new data and technology raise. How can librarians build the necessary competencies, and through these the needed new services, to become better partners in using digitized texts?


Join us to kick off this fall’s weekly discussions with a closer look at this emerging curriculum around text mining. We’ll review the goals of the project and the outline of the curriculum, to identify areas where we would like to dig deeper ourselves. Throughout the fall semester we’ll revisit this topic and relevant readings to better understand librarians’ roles in supporting analysis of textual corpora. For those who attended the ASERL webinar on this topic or who will attend a workshop with the Digging Deeper project, this is an opportunity to familiarize yourself with some of the background work and readings.
