Digital Scholar Lab is a cloud-based tool that allows users to discover and create data sets from the content in the Gale Primary Sources purchased and licensed by the University of Delaware Library. Data sets can then be analyzed using the text analysis and visualization tools built into Digital Scholar Lab. The text analysis tools use open source text mining and natural language processing to measure and analyze the features or elements of the texts in a data set, and include Named Entity Recognition, Topic Modelling, Parts of Speech, Sentiment Analysis, N-grams and more.
*Users are required to set up a Digital Scholar Lab account via Google or Microsoft. Connect to Digital Scholar Lab, click on Login/Create Account and follow the instructions.
*It is highly recommended that users contact a Digital Scholarship Librarian before embarking on a Digital Humanities project. These experts will help you learn about digital archives, workflows and curation as well as help you determine if Digital Scholar Lab is the best platform for your project. They can also work with faculty to develop instructions plans that implement digital methods or tools into their courses.
