The HathiTrust is a massive preservation repository of digitized books and periodicals created by over 100 college and universities. As a member of the HathiTrust, the UH Manoa community has access to the full text of all public domain works, and the ability to perform computations on the entire digital library. This workshop will introduce you to the HathiTrust, provide information and advice for exploring its resources, and demonstrated some of the exciting opportunities created by this mass of digitized text.
