Learn about the latest and greatest in the Digital Humanities showcase. Presentations include:

Jason M. Kelly, “The Open Scholarship Project"

The Open Scholarship Project (OSP) seeks to transform the process of humanistic knowledge production and distribution by building an open access editing and publishing system unlike any other currently available. OSP has integrated four features that make it unique in the digital publishing landscape. First, OSP is predicated on the principle of Diamond Open Access. Secondly, it allows authors to version their work as it develops from conference paper to article to book. Thirdly, OSP fuses open peer review and threaded conversation into each draft, crediting all contributors in all future versions. Fourthly, OSP uses the Mozilla Open Badges Framework, which allows groups -- professional organizations, publishers, or even small groups of specialists -- to give their imprimatur to an author’s work.

The HathiTrust Research Center: An Overview of Advanced Computational Services

The HathiTrust Research Center enables computational access for nonprofit and educational users to published works in the HathiTrust Digital Library. In this session staff from the HTRC will provide an overview of the HTRC current services and will showcase our Secure HathiTrust Analytics Research Commons (SHARC) software release. Presenters include Robert H. McDonald (Associate Dean for Library Technologies/Deputy Director Data to Insight Center,  Indiana University), Nicholae Cline (ScholarsCommons Librarian for the HathiTrust Research Center, Indiana University), Dirk Herr-Hoyman (HTRC Operations Manager, Indiana University)

HT+BW: An NEH Funded Initiative for text analysis of HathiTrust Digital Library (HTDL) with Bookworm

This session will discuss HT+BW, a project to integrate the HTDL corpus, processed at the Hathitrust Research Center (HTRC), with the Bookworm platform for text analysis, developed at the Cultural Observatory. Bookworm greatly extends the type of analysis that was popularized by the Google Ngrams Viewer, making it possible to “slice and dice” the data in an arbitrary corpus, in real time, using a greatly enhanced set of content-based and metadata-based features. The HT+BW will greatly increase the value of the HTRC because it will assist humanities scholars and students in their effort to delve deeper into the HathiTrust corpus and to explore more complex, multi-faceted research questions.Presented by Loretta Auvil (University of Illinois).
