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.
