Abstract: Bookworm, developed by the Cultural Observatory, is a tool that visualizes chronological trends in lexical usage within collections of digitized texts with metadata facets. The goal of this collaboration is to implement an enhanced open-source version of Bookworm that will enable culturomic exploration of the corpus of the HathiTrust Digital Library (HTDL), which represents a significant part of mankind's cultural legacy. Project participants include developers of the Google Ngram Viewer. The HT+BW project applies a similar idea to the vast collection of digitized text in the HTDL. The HTDL’s metadata is being leveraged for sophisticated trend analysis at a fine level of granularity. The HTDL consists of materials from the holdings of some of the pre-eminent research libraries in the world, and currently consists of over 13 million volumes of digitized text, of which over 4.6 million are in the public domain.

Panel Discussion: The HathiTrust Research Center (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Panel Discussion: The HathiTrust Research Center
Author: J. Stephen Downie
Author: Beth Plale
Author: Loretta Auvil
Author: Peter Organisciak
Abstract: While large corpora of digitized books provide unprecedented opportunities for novel modes of scholarly inquiry, through computational analysis, into the cultural legacy of mankind as preserved in print media, corpora that include books that are under copyright and cannot be made available to scholars for computational analysis in bulk form, present a special challenge. A second challenge for inquiry in the humanities, is that the interface should provide scholars with tools for both distant and close reading. This panel will consist of four papers that present a complementary set of approaches to this problem, which, individually, provide scholarly users with interfaces to the text data along collection-centric, document-centric, and word/phrase-centric threads of inquiry into the corpus. The first paper will present the underlying cyberinfrastructural approach to this problem as embodied in the non-consumptive approach to scholarly research. The second paper will describe the collection-centric interface to the corpus via the notion of the workset, the customized subset of the corpus, which a scholar gathers, curates, and sustains through version management, and will conceptually describe the data model that can be operationalized into an architecture and interface to support worksets. The third and fourth papers will describe the HTRC-Bookworm and HTRC-Feature-Extraction initiatives, which represent word/phrase -centric and document-centric approaches, respectively, to interfacing with the corpus.

HT+BW: HathiTrust+Bookworm (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: HT+BW: HathiTrust+Bookworm
Author: Loretta Auvil
Abstract: 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.

The HathiTrust Research Center: Large-scale Computational Analysis with the World’s First Massive Digital Library (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: The HathiTrust Research Center: Large-scale Computational Analysis with the World’s First Massive Digital Library
Author: Sayan Bhattacharyya
Abstract: The HathiTrust (HT) is a research consortium and digital library consisting of more than 13 million volumes of digitized text, mostly from the world's foremost research libraries. A large part of this material is under copyright and hence not directly downloadable. The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) has started developing facilities for non-consumptive access to the text data by providing innovative means of analytical access (without allowing download-access) to the text data. The workshop is intended for students and researchers interested in textual analytics using the HTRC corpus. Sayan Bhattacharyya, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the HTRC, will showcase different approaches/mechanisms for non-consumptive analysis of the HT corpus, such as a portal, an HTRC Data Capsule, an Extracted Features (EF) dataset based on a subset of the corpus, and an HT+Bookworm tool for trend analysis on the corpus.

The HathiTrust Research Center's Tools for Text Analysis with Digitized Text from the HathiTrust Digital Library (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: The HathiTrust Research Center's Tools for Text Analysis with Digitized Text from the HathiTrust Digital Library
Author: Eleanor Dickson
Author: Sayan Bhattacharyya
Abstract: The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) provides research support for the growing corpus of over fourteen million volumes in the HathiTrust Digital Library (HTDL) through a suite of tools text analysis. The size of the HTDL affords scholars the opportunity to increase the scale of their inquiry and to ask new kinds of research questions. The HTRC tools create avenues for scholars to pursue these new modes of research by allowing for “non-consumptive” text analysis with the HTDL corpus. Through demonstrations, hands-on exercises, and discussion, workshop attendees will learn about the suite of HTRC tools and how they can be used to support research and teaching. Attendees will come away with an understanding of: HTRC tools that allow researchers to build custom subcollections of items from the HTDL, run HTRC-provided, off-the-shelf algorithms against them, and interpret the results; HathiTrust+Bookworm, an interactive visualization for studying lexical trends within material from the HTDL; and the Extracted Features (EF) Dataset, which provides page-level metadata and data derived from the items in a subcollection that a researcher can download and analyze on his or her own computer. The workshop will present scenarios and example use cases in which HTRC tools shine, and will demonstrate the ways in which they can complement each other. Attendees will learn new strategies and approaches for the complex research questions that digitized text corpora are uniquely poised to help answer across academic disciplines.

New tools from the HathiTrust Research Center for digitized text analysis at scale: The HathiTrust+Bookworm tool and the Extracted Features dataset (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: New tools from the HathiTrust Research Center for digitized text analysis at scale: The HathiTrust+Bookworm tool and the Extracted Features dataset
Abstract: As library digitization efforts produce large quantities of digitized textual content, they create the conditions of possibility for novel inferencing techniques at scale, raising tantalizing possibilities for producing new knowledge about history, linguistics, literary studies and other related fields. However, this possibility will be realized only if tools and infrastructure to explore and analyze textual data can rise to the challenge posed by the data’s scale and access restrictions. To this end, the HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC), based jointly at the University of Illinois and Indiana University, is creating novel capabilities to enable scholars to have access, for research purposes, to the millions of works that constitute the content of the HathiTrust Digital Library. We will discuss two such capabilities — (1) the HathiTrust+Bookworm (HT+BW) tool; and (2) the HTRC Extracted Features (EF) dataset. The first, HT+BW, is an NEH-funded multi-university initiative for visualizing language usage trends; the current prototype supports nearly five million books. The second, the HTRC Extracted Features Dataset, makes available, for the same works, certain kinds of extracted quantitative data at the page level. In this talk, we will describe: Technical challenges posed by the massive scale of the HathiTrust Digital Library content, and how HT+BW and the HTRC EF dataset are meeting some of these challenges. Epistemic issues foregrounded by pedagogical uses of HT+BW and the HTRC EF dataset.

Abstract: The HathiTrust holds one of the largest collections of digitized published work in the world. With nearly 14 million volumes ("Currently Digitized", HathiTrust.org), it is a challenge to create mechanisms to understand and interpret a collection of this size. The HathiTrust+Bookworm (HT+BW) project presents ways to behold that textual content through interactive visualization. In this poster, we present new work from HT+BW in applying visualization as an complementary, rather than center, tool for supporting better comprehension of large collections. Whereas HT+BW has previously been used in standalone contexts with pre-determined metadata, we present work in two new areas: 1) allowing scholars to analyze custom personal collections from within the larger corpus; and 2) use of HT+BW as a supplement to other uses of the HathiTrust Research Center.
