Gale’s newly launched Digital Scholar Lab has received two outstanding reviews from American Reference Books Annual and Booklist. Digital Scholar Lab, a cloud-based research environment, allows both students and researchers to apply natural language processing tools to raw text data (OCR) from Gale Primary Sources in a single research platform.

Read below to see what both reviews highlighted about Digital Scholar Lab:

Booklist

Digitization of archives and technology-based text analysis have changed the field of humanities research. Gale’s Digital Scholar Lab works with a library’s subscription to Gale Primary Sources, connecting students and scholars with easy-to-use tools to explore many angles of analysis. For libraries with a collection of Gale Primary Sources that support students and scholars in the humanities and social sciences.”

– Susan Maguire, Senior Editor for Collection Management and Library Outreach

American Reference Books Annual (ARBA)

“The Digital Scholar Lab operates in a Cloud-based research environment, which provides libraries with valuable savings, but, maybe more importantly, the Digital Scholar Lab will encourage students and scholars to use library resources to complete projects. It is hard not to be excited about the possibilities opened up by digital humanities generally and by the Digital Scholar Lab in particular. The appeal to graduate students and scholars is obvious, but the Digital Scholar Lab also has the potential to make in-depth research accessible to undergraduates. Highly recommended for academic libraries.
