Attendees - Official HTRC Wiki


HTRC UnCamp. HTRC is hosting its first annual HTRC UnCamp in September 2012 at Indiana University in Bloomington. The UnCamp is different: it is part hands-on coding and demonstration, part inspirational use-cases, part community building, and a part informational, all structured in the dynamic setting of an un-conference programming format. It has visionary speakers mixed with boot-camp activities and hands-on sessions with HTRC infrastructure and tools. Through the HTRC Data API, attendees will be able to browse and run applications (yours or ours) against the full 2.8M volumes of the public domain corpus of HathiTrust. Bloomington is lovely in September and the IU campus is noted as one of the most beautiful public university campuses in the nation.

Who should attend? The HTRC UnCamp is targeted to the digital humanities tool developers, researchers and librarians of HathiTrust member institutions, and graduate students. Confirmed Attendees
