The workshops will be offered virtually in two series this spring. Each series consists of four workshops which will be spread over four weeks. 


Series 1: 2/12, 2/19, 2/26, 3/5 all 12-2 p.m. E.T. [Register]

Series 2: 4/2, 4/9, 4/16, 4/23 all 12-2 p.m. E.T. [Register]


The four workshops in each series are: 


1: Introduction to HTRC for text and data mining 

2: HTRC Extracted Features dataset 

3: HTRC Data Capsules environment 

4: Supporting text and data mining from the library


Please register for workshops in only one of the series and do not mix-and-match between the two series. Registration is limited to affiliates of HathiTrust member institutions.


Librarians who attend all four days will be invited to join the HTRC Trainers Community, through which they will have access to further training opportunities, including a reading group, support for teaching a workshop locally, and the opportunity to communicate with others who teach with or support use of HTRC on their campus. Members of the community are expected to teach an HTRC workshop locally within nine months of having completed an HTRC workshop series.



About HTRC

The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) enables computational analysis of the HathiTrust corpus. It is a collaborative research center launched jointly by Indiana University and the University of Illinois, along with HathiTrust, to help meet the technical challenges researchers face when dealing with massive amounts of digital text. It develops cutting-edge software tools and cyberinfrastructure to enable advanced computational access to the growing digital record of human knowledge.

Leveraging data storage and computational infrastructure at Indiana University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the HTRC builds tools and services for scholars to perform research using data from the HathiTrust Digital Library. The Center is breaking new ground in the areas of text mining and non-consumptive research, allowing scholars to fully utilize HathiTrust content while preventing intellectual property misuse within the confines of current U.S. copyright law.
