HathiTrust Research Center UnCamp
A 1.5 Day Event
Sept 10-11, 2012
Indiana University, Bloomington, IN

Mark your calendars. 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. Attendance will be capped at 60 
participants, so plan to register early!

Travel funds and Registration. HTRC anticipates funding a small number 
of travel grants that can be used by an attendee to bring along a 
graduate student, or for a HathiTrust member librarian/technologist to 
bring along a researcher from their organization who is interested in 
engaging with our research center. The Uncamp will have a minimal 
registration fee so as to make the Uncamp as affordable as possible for 
you to attend.



If you have questions or suggestions regarding the Uncamp please feel
