Finding Data: Digging Deeper Into Printed Texts
The words on the newspaper page or novel or scholarly text can tell us so much more when we begin to think of it as a source of data. In this workshop you will learn to identify textual data that can be analyzied by various computer applications, learn which resources among the Libraries' databases can be readily used to capture textual data for this purpose, and how to use existing programs and software to enhance and vizualize your arguments about connections among ideas as expressed on the printed page across disciplines from historical events, literature, and secondary scholarly literature.
Bring your laptop to the session or use one of ours (Macs will be provided if you don't have a laptop).
