  • Webinar Description
    Text and Data Mining (TDM) facilitates the discovery, selection, structuring and analysis of large numbers of documents/sets of data, enabling the visualisation of results in new ways to support innovation and the development of new knowledge. In both academe and commercial contexts TDM is increasingly recognised as a means to extract, re-use and leverage additional value from published information, by linking concepts, addressing specific questions, and creating efficiencies. But TDM in practice is not straightforward. TDM methodology and use are fast changing but not matched by the development of enabling policies.
    This webinar provides a summary review of where we are today with TDM as seen from the perspective of the researcher, library and licensing publisher communities.
