ASERL Friends: ASERL is pleased to announce we have secured a discount agreement for Gale's Digital Scholar Lab. The Digital Scholar Lab is a cloud-based research environment that allows students and scholars to apply natural language processing tools to raw text data (OCR) from Gale's primary source collections in a single research environment. The Lab removes key barriers to entry into digital scholarship, enabling users at any level to text mine large corpora of historical texts, and streamlines workflows to enable scholars and students to focus on their core research objectives. To introduce this offer, we have arranged for a webinar with two digital scholars who can talk about their use of the tool. Dr. Wendy Perla Kurtz (Lecturer in Hispanic Language and Literature at UCLA; and Digital Humanities Specialist for Gale) will walk through the impetus behind the creation of the Lab, as well as highlight the available functionality. Dr. Sarah Ketchley (Lecturer in Near Eastern Language and Civilization at University of Washington; and Digital Humanities Specialist for Gale) will discuss pedagogical uses cases of the Lab, focusing on introductory-level classes in digital humanities.
