Show, Tell and Ask: Tools, Tips and Data

In a rapidly evolving field it is difficult to keep up with all the available tools, techniques and data sources available and being used. This session would offer a space to share experiences – good and bad – of various tools and data sources that people have used to do data cleaning, data analysis, named entity extraction, text analysis, visualisation and any particular experiences of using data sources (either specific sources, or types of interfaces)

This session isn’t intended to deliver an in-depth view of any particular tool or data source but to take a cook’s tour based on the experience of the attendees.

About Owen Stephens

I'm a librarian with a particular interest in computers and information technology. I've work on a wide variety of projects that might be considered to support digital humanities research including working on the project which led to the electronic theses (EThOS) service at the British Library, helping develop the recently launched Historical Texts platform developed by Jisc in the UK (, and delivering training on tools such as OpenRefine which can be used to improve and understand data from a wide variety of sources.
