Description

Providing access to digital collections can be problematic, librarians and archivists are inundated with poorly described born-digital materials with scant metadata. Topic modeling, a method of statistical analysis that can discover thematic elements within a set of documents, allows archivists and librarians working with digital collections to describe and make accessible digital material without laborious manual processing.Our presentation will show how libraries can easily implement topic modeling in diverse library environments dealing with digital texts.
