The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) enables computational analysis of the HathiTrust corpus which includes more than 17 million digitized books from libraries around the world. 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. HTRC builds tools and services for scholars to perform research using HathiTrust data.
The HTRC Curriculum Development Fellowship Program is sponsored by the Pervasive Technology Institute and provides a semester-long opportunity for faculty to learn to integrate HathiTrust Research Center text data mining tools into their curriculum and work with students. Fellows will attend a virtual workshop to learn more about the HathiTrust collection and the HathiTrust Research Center tools and will participate in one-on-one consultations with HTRC staff throughout the program. All educational materials developed through the program will be openly licensed and made available for reuse by other educators on the HTRC website.
