HathiTrust is a partnership of academic and research institutions, offering a collection of millions of titles digitized from libraries around the world. The HathiTrust Digital Library (HTDL) is a digital preservation repository and highly functional access platform that continues to grow as HathiTrust partners, primarily academic libraries in the United States, contribute newly digitized content.

HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) enables computational analysis of works in the HTDL to facilitate non-profit research and educational uses of the collection. Leveraging data storage and computational infrastructure at Indiana University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, HTRC creates and maintains a suite of tools and services for text-based, data-driven research—such as HTRC Algorithms and Data Capsule—and engages in cutting-edge research on large-scale data analysis.

HTRC services include:

  • Run algorithms and show results
  • Create and show data capsules
  • Create and validate worksets, as well as browse shared materials
  • Explore datasets with Bookworm, Extracted Features, and Genre (Underwood)

Most HTRC services require an account to log in and interact with the tools. Register for an account by going to the portal and choosing “Sign Up” from the menu. Anyone using an email address from a non-profit institution of higher education is allowed to register, including those whose institutions are not HathiTrust members.
