About the HathiTrust Research Center and the HTRC UnCamp

The HTRC is a collaborative research center launched jointly by Indiana University and the University of Illinois, along with the HathiTrust Digital Library, to help meet the technical challenges of dealing with massive amounts of digital text that researchers face by developing cutting-edge software tools and cyberinfrastructure to enable advanced computational access to the growing digital record of human knowledge.


In years past, the HTRC UnCamp has brought researchers, developers, instructors, and information professionals together to showcase innovative research, participate in hands-on coding and demonstration sessions, and build community around themes of computational text analysis, digital humanities, and digital pedagogy.
