Supporting text mining research requires an understanding of the process of text mining in order for librarians to assist researchers to use library resources as sources text mining data, to license electronic resources in way that makes provisions for such uses, and to manage and/or provide access to text mining tools among other activities. Because text mining is a relatively new method for research, few librarians have had an introduction to and/or training needed to accomplish these tasks.
