Reimagining libraries as conveners of information and innovation – Knight Foundation

A fascinating project exploring the realms of possibility with digitized libraries, using the Internet Archive as a data set!

Each of these projects explores what is possible when libraries open their collections to data scientists, allowing them to apply data mining algorithms to catalog, mine, visualize and create new ways of interacting with these vast archives. The results of such “big data” analyses by this new generation of “data librarians” yields new tools and datasets that can subsequently be used by ordinary citizens and journalists to transform how they access and understand the world.
