The potential to mine and analyse historical and other content sets is becoming realized in ways that were not possible even five years ago. To be successful, researchers need large volumes of information structured and in machine-readable formats. ProQuest is developing Data and Text Mining (DTM) services to best suit the evolving needs of Researchers. This active engagement ensures librarians will continue to have an important role in supporting digital humanities in identifying new areas of research across multiple disciplines.
A key goal of ProQuest’s Data and Text Mining project is the facilitation of collaboration between institutions. Researchers at subscribing institutions can share content, tools, and data sets with their collaborators and peer review boards in order to develop best practice and statistical techniques, supporting beginner researchers and experienced researchers alike. From here, the challenge will be ensuring sustainability into the future.
