ANN ARBOR—University researchers will now be able to uncover new connections and make new discoveries using ProQuest’s TDM Studio service, a new system for text and data mining.
With this new service, creating a content set has been reduced to hours, rather than the months required with traditional approaches. TDM Studio gives researchers the freedom to use the content, methods and tools they prefer—and to collaborate on projects both within and outside their university.
TDM Studio unlocks a vast collection of current and historical ProQuest content (including news, journals dissertations and theses, primary sources and more) for TDM. Researchers also have the option to incorporate content from other sources, and to utilize their preferred methods with open source programming languages such as R and Python—along with methods provided by ProQuest—for analysis and visualization.
“The use of text and data mining in academia is enabling researchers in all disciplines to make breakthroughs that have never before been possible,” said Mindy Pozenel, director of product management for ProQuest TDM Studio. “With its flexibility and ease of use, TDM Studio helps researchers bypass the cumbersome mechanics of text and data mining and get straight to the point: answering their research questions. TDM Studio has also been designed as an ideal solution for teaching and learning.”
Librarians can use TDM Studio to further leverage their existing wealth of content, creating more ways to partner with research teams and enhance teaching and learning.
In addition to Yale, Columbia and the University of Arkansas, nine other institutions globally partnered with ProQuest and contributed to the development of TDM Studio. Several early-access customers are already using TDM Studio, and ProQuest is currently recruiting additional early users.
ProQuest TDM Studio will launch in the second quarter of 2020. Learn more about TDM Studio on our website.
