What is big data? What can we learn by mining the deep connections embedded within scholarly information? How can big data tools provide intelligent analysis in a manner that materially impacts researchers, librarians, and publishers? What type of infrastructure development is required? This session will delve into these questions and explore what a number of innovative organizations are doing today to make sense of global research at a firehose scale. Specific topics to be covered include the extraction of entities and connections from across the corpus of scholarly articles; the development of meaningful "at scale" analysis; how vast quantities of information can be distilled into services useful for a range of stakeholders; and what libraries can do to support big data projects originating on campus.
