HathiTrust announces a significant expansion of the capabilities of the HathiTrust Research Center. Until now, researchers using HTRC’s services could work only with the portion of the HathiTrust collection that is in the public domain or CC-licensed. Now, thanks to a great deal of support from both Indiana University and the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, HTRC has begun support for secure text and data mining services on all 14 million volumes in HathiTrust. This is being piloted in 2016 with projects in the Advanced Collaborative Support program (see https://www.hathitrust.org/htrc_sp16_acs-rfp). Availability through services such as the Analytics Portal (https://analytics.hathitrust.org/) is planned by early 2017. We are excited to at last be able to offer this expanded access, and hope that you will be in touch with any questions.
