The HathiTrust Research Center: It Takes a Village

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) is the research arm of the HathiTrust Digital Library (HTDL). HTRC's mission is to enable text analysis and data mining of massive amounts of digital text from the HathiTrust corpus by developing cutting-edge software tools and cyberinfrastructure to enable advanced computational access to the growing digital record of human knowledge. In this panel discussion, which will be moderated by HTRC Executive Director Mike Furlough, we examine two topics:

1. The HTRC Scholars' Commons program that is focused on developing and sharing a training program for librarians on text analysis and data mining foundation concepts using HTRC tools;

2. The organizational integration steps of the HathiTrust Digital Library to integrate the output of HTDL governance and working groups and committees with the ongoing work of the HTRC and vice versa.
