AUK Library Hosts Lecture on Digital Humanities

The AUK Library organized a lecture on Digital Humanities by Mr. Terry Robinson - Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Gale International, a Cengage Company. Mr. Robinson introduced Gale's primary source materials in which valuable content in the Humanities is digitized and preserved. Through collaborations with special collections, libraries and archives around the world, digitized manuscripts, monographs, newspapers and rare materials can be accessed by researchers worldwide.

Gale's primary source materials also provide researchers with tools to help them conduct Digital Humanities (DH) research and to be able to critically review the past in today's context. One of the tools is the Frequency tool, which shows how often a search term appears in the corpus over a certain period of time. This is in addition to the Clusters tool that identifies other phrases/terms that appear frequently with a search term to show unexpected connections. Mr. Terry explained about the importance of cleaning data for any DH work, and has shared sample projects from around the world.

The Library Director, Asma Al Kanan, thanked Mr. Robinson for introducing the latest resources from Gale International which will help enrich the learning and research experience of AUK's students and faculty.
