"The Library of Congress’ Selected Datasets Collection is now live!... This initial set of 20 datasets represents the public start of an ongoing collecting program tied to the Library’s plan to support emerging styles of data-driven research, such as text mining and machine learning. In this post we’ll take a broad look at the work that went into implementing this program, check out some of the acquired datasets, and discuss our plans for continued program development."
