Francesca Giannetti

This workshop is the first of two exploring the recently added New Jersey newspapers in Chronicling America. In this first part, we’ll focus on techniques and strategies for fuzzy string matching in the R programming language, using the OCR-derived text from the Perth Amboy Evening News. Anyone interested in fuzzy string matching or textual analysis of mass print is encouraged to attend.
