The University of Houston Libraries will host a workshop for academic librarians on Friday, May 18.
The free, day-long workshop is part of Digging Deeper, Reaching Further: Libraries Empowering Users to Mine the HathiTrust Digital Library Resources, an initiative of the HathiTrust Research Center. The workshop’s “train-the-trainer” curriculum was developed to help academic librarians support the evolving digital scholarship needs of students, faculty, and researchers.
The May 18 workshop, to be held at the University of Houston MD Anderson Library’s Digital Research Commons, will introduce participants to text mining with particular attention to the tools and data of the HathiTrust Research Center.
The three-year project is funded by a Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian grant award from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
