HathiTrust Premieres New Dataset

The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) released the HTRC Extracted Features Dataset, which was sourced from 4.8 million public domain volumes from the HathiTrust Digital Library collection. These volumes contain more than 734 billion words in dozens of languages, as well as works from multiple centuries.

The dataset’s features include volume-level metadata, part-of-speech-tagged token counts, header and footer identification, sentence and line count, and algorithmic language detection. Researchers can use these and other page- and line-level features to analyze large worksets of volumes at previously difficult-to-implement scales.

For more information, read the press release.
