With the exponential increase in digital information, Text and Data Mining (TDM) is becoming a widely used research method supported by the development of specialised tools and technology. Challenges in using TDM research methods include licensing and copyright restrictions and a lack of skills and knowledge. As academic libraries seek to broaden their support for digital scholarship, how can librarians address the challenge of developing services that support TDM? By proposing a support model based on the phases of TDM research, this paper outlines how librarians can leverage current support services to support the cycle of TDM research.
