With the digital revolution, the ability to search vast amounts of
information for specific bits of data has increased exponentially with more
and more previously hard-copy only books and information being digitized
and made available online. There are many organizations working to digitize
content for the benefit of researchers and others. For example, HathiTrust
is a partnership of organizations that offers digitized information from
libraries all over the world.  Data mining partnerships between university
libraries and vendors will hope to bring millions of books and periodicals
to the fingertips of researchers.

In this webinar, presenters will talk about the benefits and challenges to
text mining and its impact on the library and information community.
