This half-day workshop will introduce attendees to the text data and computational tools of HathiTrust--which are available to McMaster Faculty, Staff, and Students. HathiTrust operates a repository of over 17 million items digitized at a network of partner libraries. This massive collection of text is available for computational text mining primarily through the tools and services of the HathiTrust Research Center. Attendees of this workshop will gain hands-on experience with these data and tools in order to become more familiar with the opportunities for research HathiTrust makes available. The workshop will include:
- A characterization of the data available
- Hands-on activities with HTRC’s Extracted Features dataset and secure research environment
No experience is required, but prior exposure to text analysis concepts would be beneficial
