Students and researchers today have access to massive amounts of digitized text from the world’s research libraries.  Access to this growing digital record of human knowledge provides researchers with an unprecedented opportunity, but working with such material requires new tools to effectively analyze digitized text at so large a scale. This workshop will introduce cutting-edge software tools and cyberinfrastructure that are being developed at the Hathi Trust Research Center (HTRC)* to meet these needs in the context of the digitized text collection of the Hathi Trust Digital Library, currently comprising more than 11 million digitized volumes.

This session will provide an introduction to using the HathiTrust Portal, http://htrc2.pti.indiana.edu, for text analytics. Attendees will learn how to build a workset consisting of material from the HathiTrust Digital Library's collection, run textual analysis tools (provided in the HathiTrust Portal) on the created workset, and generate visualizations based on the results of such analyses.

*The Hathi Trust Research Center is a collaborative research center operated jointly by Indiana University and the University of Illinois, along with the HathiTrust Digital Library.
