Big Data Support for Humanities Research
UF researchers have been awarded $60,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to fund a digital humanities start-up grant through the partnership of UF’s Department of English, the George A. Smathers Libraries, and UF Research Computing. The project, MassMine: Collecting and Archiving Big Data for Social Media Humanities Researchers, will support development of an open-source toolkit and training materials that would allow humanities researchers to collect and analyze data drawn from social media sites. The research will utilize the compute power of HiPerGator and MassMine software. For more information about the project, visit the UFIT News website.
