Episode 45

For this series on the research methodologies around—and library support of—big data, our guests discuss the growth of big data research and how the academic library is stepping up to meet its unique service and instruction needs. In this first episode of our four-part series, we define what the term “big data” means in an academic setting and how big data research is outgrowing its science-based origins and bleeding into the humanities and social sciences.
