Applications are now open for the HathiTrust Research Center’s Advanced Collaborative Support program. Apply by April 15 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. While all applications will be entertained, proposals in the following areas are encouraged this round:
* Genre (or other categorical) detection;
* Metadata generation and derivation that may support discovery or further exploration of the corpus;
* Pedagogical uses of HTRC, e.g., development of teaching or instructional modules;
* Analysis of HathiTrust content in combination with other data sources.
Proposals are due April 15, 2019. Projects will run from June 1, 2019 through no later than May 31, 2020.
