The mission of the HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) is to provide tools, environments, and services for computational research on the content of the 17-million-volume HathiTrust Digital Library. In this talk, I will provide an overview of the Text Data Mining (TDM) activities and services provided by HTRC, with additional detail on two current initiatives, Scholar Curated Worksets for Analysis, Re-use, and Dissemination (SCWAReD), supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and Tools for Open Research and Computation with HathiTrust: Leveraging Intelligent Text Extraction (TORCHLITE), supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
