New Tools Available to Mine World's Largest Digital Repository of Books


This week the HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) announced the availability of data mining and analytics tools for the HathiTrust Digital Library, a collection of digital texts from over 70 research libraries around the world. The new tools provide a much-needed entry point to large-scale analysis of HathiTrust's contents.


"All of us at Indiana University and the University of Illinois, who have been working toward this release for the last year, can be proud of enabling a first round of shared computation tools for the HathiTrust corpus," said Beth Plale, professor in the IU School of Informatics and Computing and co-director of the HTRC. "We are now ready to share this framework for analytical (non-consumptive) research."
