        Subject: HathiTrust Research Center Awards Six ACS Projects

HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) is pleased to announce the award of its third round of Advanced Collaborative Support (ACS) projects. This round’s request for proposals focused on projects that engage with in-copyright worksets using HTRC’s Data Capsule service. Submitted proposals addressed a diverse set of topics and research areas and were submitted from a varied pool of institutions from around the world. Out of a large body of quality submissions, only six projects were awarded.

Awardees will be provided dedicated HTRC staff time to support their research using texts in the HathiTrust Digital Library for a period of up to six months. New this round, each ACS project team will release its workset (research collections of data, or metadata, for analysis) publicly, allowing for other researchers to engage with the same workset.

The six awarded projects are:

Computational Support for Reading Chicago Reading
Project team: Robin Burke, John Shanahan, Ana Lucic (DePaul University)

Modeling the History of Book Design
Project team: David Bamman, Bjorn Hartmann (University of California, Berkeley)
