Hui Hua Chua, Collections & User Support Librarian from Michigan State University, described her library's experience with creating a powerful web-based interface to provide all campus users unmediated access to search and download news content from the LexisNexis corpus for text mining.

Patricia Feeney, Product Support Manager at Crossref, provided an overview of the metadata available through Crossref’s REST API, and how it can be used to help automate text and data mining.
