Working with HathiTrust Data
March 8 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The HathiTrust Digital Library is the largest set of digitized books in the world. Its collection spans over 17 million items and is composed of the combined collections of several major research libraries in the United States. In addition to making a significant amount of its collection freely available online, HathiTrust also provides cloud-based research computing interfaces to sort and analyze its collections for scholarly purposes. As such, the HathiTrust collection presents an extremely rich source of data as well as a versatile set of tools for computational inquiry across the humanities and the social sciences. This workshop provides an overview of the interface for accessing and analyzing the HathiTrust’s data. Participants will learn some basic digital text analysis concepts and have an opportunity to start playing with the HathiTrust data.
This workshop will run in a hybrid format. Participants will be emailed resources to read and short assignments to try out on March 1. We will then meet via zoom on March 8th at 1:00pm to discuss your experiences with using the tools and address any questions or concerns that you may have. Zoom details will be provided to participants who register.
