Cape Coral, FL (March 24, 2015) — Unlimited Priorities LLC, a firm specializing in support for small and medium-size companies in the information and publishing industries, and The North Carolina State University Libraries (NCSU Libraries), have collaborated to open up Accessible Archives’ databases for text and data mining for client libraries.
Text and data mining (TDM) encompasses dozens of computationally-intensive techniques and procedures used to examine and transform data and metadata. At its core, TDM uses high-speed computing technology to examine large data sets in order to recognize and model meaningful patterns and rules.
Unlimited Priorities orchestrated this initiative at the request of Darby Orcutt, Assistant Head, Collection Management, at The NCSU Libraries. Mr. Orcutt explained: “Through this model agreement, Unlimited Priorities and Accessible Archives have become even stronger partners with libraries in supporting the current and emerging needs of researchers. They quickly and positively responded to the opportunity for a win-win relationship in this area. Not only does this agreement open up large and high-quality historical datasets for mining by our users, but as scholars come to understand this content in ways that only such computational research makes possible, the value of these resources for academia correspondingly increases.”
