Scholar-Curated Worksets for Analysis, Reuse & Dissemination (SCWAReD)

The Scholar-Curated Worksets for Analysis, Reuse & Dissemination (SCWAReD, pronounced “squared”) project is intended to produce a suite of curated, targeted HTRC (HathiTrust Research Center) worksets and illustrative, reusable research models that demonstrate the collaborative workset-building, textual analysis, workflow development, and dataset creation activities typically carried out by the Research Center.  

The goal of these projects will be to explore new methods for creating, analyzing, and reusing curated digital library collections, along with research data derived from these collections. SCWAReD aims to address inequities in both library collections and digital humanities research by identifying gaps within HathiTrust and by using computationally-assisted efforts to recover content that is already part of the HathiTrust Digital Library, but that may be difficult to discover with traditional metadata, in a traditional catalog, from within a massive digital collection.
