Presentation 1
Snapshot - Lowering the Bar: Making Text and Data Mining Accessible
At University of Toronto Libraries, TDM requests have revealed gaps in our workflows and the frustration of researchers who are seeking access to licensed materials to perform TDM research. We’ll outline our first steps in making the process easier for librarians and researchers alike.
Presenters: Graeme Slaght, Leslie Barnes

Presentation 2
Universal / Customizable: Providing Flexible Text for Unmediated Experience
Text for computational research should be made available to all with as few restrictions as possible. MSU Libraries has built tools that provide users direct and customizable access to large volumes of text, allowing them to leap over several of the initial hurdles to engaging in computational research.
Presenter: Devin Higgins

Presentation 3
Snapshot - (Re)skilling the 21st Century Librarian: Empowering Librarians to Support Text Analysis Research
How do we prepare our librarian colleagues to actively participate in digital scholarship? We provide an update on a train-the-trainer initiative that is building digital scholarship competencies in the library community. We report lessons learned in year one of developing a curriculum to teach librarians skills for text analysis research.
Presenters: Harriett Green, Eleanor Dickson, Amanda Henley

Presentation 4
Snapshot: Humanities Collaborations and Research Practices: Investigating New Modes of Collaborative Humanities Scholarship
This paper will present findings from “Humanities Collaborations and Research Practices: Exploring Scholarship in the Global Midwest,” a project that examines the community of practice in the Humanities Without Walls Global Midwest initiative in order to understand humanities research at the level of practice, process, and collaboration.
Presenters: Harriett Green, Angela Courtney
