We recognise the benefits of Data Mining for new research in the Humanities and Social Sciences and are committed to enabling these research methods, free of charge, as endorsed by international law *.
Historically, Adam Matthew Digital has worked with a number of content providers to allow Data Mining of their material. Examples include:
- ‘Being Human: Mass Observation and Morale’. A week-long event, in partnership with the University of Sussex, at which invitees mined data from Mass Observation Online in order to generate visualisations based on the theme of morale in 20th century Britain.
- ‘Trading Consequences’‘Trading Consequences’. A multi-institutional collaboration that uses text mining of four Archives Direct collections to explore international commodity trading in the 19th century British empire.
Our outreach team can work with librarians and other faculty to design guides to data mining with Adam Matthew Digital content, provide ideas for data mining workshops, and create overviews of the data accessible at your institution.
