This workshop is an introduction to ProQuest TDM Studio, ProQuest’s new text and data mining platform. ProQuest TDM Studio allows researchers to mine and computationally analyze large volumes of published content from news, scholarly and other publications provided to the Stanford Libraries via current ProQuest subscriptions. We will demonstrate how to access the data repositories, perform searches, extract and develop a text corpus and how to link the extracts to the computational environment (Jupyter Notebook) to process and analyze the data with R or Python.
We recommend that you apply for a ProQuest TDM Studio account in advance of the workshop. Account sign-up is not required to attend the workshop, but there will be time to troubleshoot and answer additional questions about the platform at the end of the session.
