Thursday, December 7, 2023 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM)
As technology continues to advance, the importance of machine learning and artificial intelligence is becoming increasingly apparent across all disciplines. In the realm of data analytics, mining, and science, there is a strong market for research and jobs. With the shift from paper to digitization, libraries and librarians face a growing burden of managing, organizing, and generating knowledge from vast amounts of data stored in their repositories, databases, and websites. Text mining is an efficient, fast, and effective way of managing and extracting knowledge from existing data stored in library archives. The techniques used in text mining can be applied to any type of library by librarians. Further, this webinar will be useful to archivists, digital curators, or any other humanities and social science professionals who are new to text mining and would like to use it in their work/research. This webinar, based on the book, Text Mining for Information Professionals - An Uncharted Territory, will demonstrate how attendees can become competent in using text mining in their daily work to provide new services to their patrons.
