Time Frame


Total Funding to Date



  • J. Stephen Downie

The HathiTrust has provided funding for the HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC), colocated at University of Illinois and Indiana University, to serve as the research arm of the HathiTrust and create an agile, technology-rich service for researchers in the digital humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and informatics. This service will help researchers conduct nonconsumptive research on the HathiTrust digital library database, a collection of 16.7 million digitized volumes. At the same time, center staff will develop and refine tools to aid in digital humanities and text mining research over large databases and will operate the secure, large-scale computation environment required by this type of research.
