HathiTrust Dataset Analyzes Page-Level Features

The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) released the alpha version of a new dataset of page-level features (notable or informative text characteristics) extracted from HathiTrust’s original, scanned representations of public domain volumes.

Extracted features include occurrences of terms as parts of speech, term-frequency counts, and line and sentence counts on each page of text, with a total of more than 67 million pages. Pages are broken into header, body, and footer sections so they can be analyzed at scale.

The HTRC welcomes feedback on how the dataset can help researchers.
