Can You Dig It? JSTOR Text + Data Mining

This workshop provides a top-level overview of the resources developed by JSTOR Labs, and provides examples of the kinds of text analyses we perform ourselves as well as the kinds of things external researchers typically do using JSTOR content.  There will also be a demonstration of a few relevant JSTOR projects such as Text Analyzer, Understanding Shakespeare, Matchmaker, and Topicgraph.  An overview on the 2 APIs currently provided (for the Shakespeare and Matchmaker data) will also be presented.
