Description
The HathiTrust Digital Library contains over 15 million volumes. Unfortunately, roughly 9 million volumes are under copyright restrictions and cannot be shared with users. To overcome this problem, the HathiTrust Research Center is creating a set of “non-consumptive research” services to make these closed materials more open and thus useful to scholars. This talk introduces such non-consumptives services as “Data Capsules,” “Extracted Features” and the “Bookworm + HathiTrust” tool.
