Applications are now open for the HathiTrust Research Center’s Advanced Collaborative Support program. Apply by April 30 to be considered for an award of HTRC staff time and expertise, technical guidance and support, and compute resources in order to complete a HathiTrust-related text and data mining project.
All selected project teams must be led by a team member with a full-time appointment at a HathiTrust member institution (https://www.hathitrust.org/community), but may include collaborators from non-affiliated institutions. Awardees may include faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, librarians, and others who specialize in digital humanities or computational social science. Proposals may come from individuals or research teams.
The theme this round is “project completion.” We especially seek to collaborate with researchers who have started a project with HTRC tools or data but who got stuck and gave it up. Reasons for putting aside the project could have been difficulty with dataset creation, questions about HTRC tool use, or lack of support generally. Previous ACS awardees are not eligible. Such proposals should demonstrate:
* A well-developed research question
* Identified analysis methods
* Unfinished analysis work with HTRC data and/or tools
* A feasible completion timeline within 6 months
Proposals are due April 30, 2020. Projects will run from June 15, 2020 through no later than January 15, 2021.
