TDM Studio for text and data mining available through K-State Libraries

Submitted by Cailin Riley

K-State researchers, faculty and students can now analyze massive volumes of data, spot trends and patterns using a unique text and data mining, or TDM, resource. TDM Studio, which enables advanced exploration of data in research, teaching and learning across disciplines, allows researchers with or without coding experience a way to transform massive datasets into comprehensible insights.

"This long-anticipated innovation greatly expands opportunities for interdisciplinary research at Kansas State University," said Dean of Libraries Lori Goetsch. "The two levels of analysis allow discoveries by researchers at all skill levels and backgrounds. We are excited to engage with our research community through the use of this new exploratory tool."

TDM Studio's new interface allows users without coding experience to build powerful visualizations in minutes, while those with coding experience benefit from TDM Studio's development environment. TDM Studio is designed to work with the Libraries' existing content, including ProQuest's extraordinary range of historical newspapers, journals and dissertations.

"We're honored to welcome Kansas State University to TDM Studio and to work together on bringing powerful data analytics to research, teaching and learning to their community," said Jim Holmes, senior vice president of global sales and marketing at ProQuest. "As one of the first universities to use the TDM Studio visualization interface, Kansas State is at the forefront of data science — and we look forward to seeing their users' insights and discoveries."

Start accessing TDM Studio for text and data mining by setting up your account, using your K-State email address. Researchers can also request Workbench access by contacting their subject librarian.
