The Indiana University Libraries has a gold mine of digital collections that can be used for computational analysis. This workshop is focused on using archival finding aids from IU Libraries' Archives Online. You will learn how to find information encoded in these documents, extract it automatically using XPath and XQuery, normalize your findings using Open Refine, and present it in an interactive timeline using Timeline JS. No prior experience with any of these things is required!
Presented by Julie Hardesty & Nick Homenda.
