The mission of the Baylor Libraries’ Digital Scholarship Program is to integrate digital research tools and techniques into campus research and curricula.


 Text Mining/Analysis Data Visualization Geospatial Analysis
Parse and structure words and phrases within texts in order to identify patterns, trends, topics, similarities, and more. Represent data in a symbolic visual environment in order to help explore and understand datasets (interactive visualization) or to convey a story or point of view (infographic). Use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) tools to question, analyze, and interpret spatial (location-based) and non-spatial (tabular) data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends.
