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 HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) to meet these needs in the context of the digitized text collection of the HathiTrust Digital Library, currently comprising more than 11 million digitized volumes. https://analytics.hathitrust.org/
