Registration is now open for fall 2021 virtual HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) workshops. This term we are offering 2 series of workshops. Each series will be offering the same core of 3 workshop events--an intro to HathiTrust data and HTRC, and focused workshops on the HTRC Extracted Features Dataset and Data Capsule, respectively--with an additional librarian-centric workshop on supporting text and data mining from the library in Series 2.
If you know others who may be interested in this series, feel free to share this email/info broadly! You do not need to be affiliated with a HathiTrust member institution to attend.
Series 1: 10-12 ET on Sept. 27, Oct. 12 & Oct. 26:
Series 2: 3-5 ET on Nov. 10, Nov. 17, Dec. 1 & Dec. 8:
This virtual workshop series will introduce attendees to the tools and services of HTRC. Each workshop, taking place on a different day, will address a different aspect of text and data mining using HathiTrust data and HTRC services. Attendees are not required to attend all workshops in a series, and can pick and choose the events that best match their interests and schedules. For someone totally new to text mining and to HathiTrust, it is recommended to attend the introductory session. Librarians who attend all 4 unique workshops will have the option to join the cohort of HTRC trainers from past workshop series, which provides access to a community list and additional training opportunities (https://wiki.htrc.illinois.edu/x/ogD3 ).
We look forward to seeing you in workshops, and let us know (via [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>) if you have any questions!
