Event Details

Extracting the Who, What, When, Where, and How from Your Journal Articles and Books

Open to:
-Faculty -Graduate Students -Postdocs -Staff -Undergraduate Students

Knowing the parts-of-speech (nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc.) associated with a given text enable you to answer question such as "What is discussed in this document, what do they do, and how do they do it?" Knowing the named entities (people, places, organization, dates, times, dollar amounts, etc) associated with a given text enable you to answer those same questions more thoroughly.

This hands-on workshop will demonstrate and facilitate the use of a locally developed tool to extract parts-of-speech and named entities from any plain text file. Participants will then learn how to use a free program called OpenRefine to sort and search through the results. Take this workshop, and your "reading" abilities will begin to take on new dimensions.

Bring your own computer.
