The British Library Labs have organised a one-day forum that will focus on text and data mining. It will bring together experts developing tools and services with those who might want to use these techniques in their research. This event is an important opportunity to influence the approach that the British Library uses to support text and data mining in the coming years.
By the end of the day, BL Labs hope to have a better understanding of: what everyone’s needs are, what the Library could be doing to support text and data mining, what accommodations tools need to make for non-experts, what basic skills and tools are necessary, and how to use these techniques in research.
The first half of the day will consist of short overviews on a variety of text and data mining projects. Speakers will include Dr David King and Dr Francesca Benatti from The Open University’s Digital Humanities network.
