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.
