Welcome to the HathiTrust Research Center!

The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) provides research access to the public domain corpus of the HathiTrust Digital Library. 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 cyber-infrastructure to enable advanced computational access to the growing digital record of human knowledge. The HTRC provides an infrastructure to search, collect, analyze, and visualize the full text of nearly 3 million public domain works and is intended for nonprofit and educational researchers.
