WORD LAB is an interest group at Penn Libraries focused on text analysis in all disciplines. We meet every Tuesday 1:30-3pm in 623 Van Pelt (the Vitale II lab). We have an approximately three-week rotating schedule:
- Week 1: A discussion or workshop based on current research, with speakers either in person or via Skype.
- Week 2: Read and discuss an article or project.
- Week 3: Work together on solutions to Natural Langauge Processing with Python.
