Digging Deeper, Reaching Further workshop curriculum

From 2015-2019, HTRC worked with several partners to lead this IMLS-funded train-the-trainer initiative for academic librarians. The curriculum teaches about text analysis using the HTRC as one example, among others, for engaging in this research method, as well as general concepts for supporting data-driven scholarship.
