Digital humanities using both closed and open data: Use cases from the HathiTrust Research Center

Talk by J. Stephen Downie of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign School of Information Sciences

Event Details

Monday, March 6, 2017
4 p.m.
Bunge Room, 4th floor HC White Hall (room 4207), Helen C. White Hall
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.
