The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) is seeking proposals for Advanced Collaborative Support (ACS) project awards. These awards are modeled in the form of HTRC staff and compute time to collaborate on the proposed project during the award period. 4-6 awards are anticipated, and awardees can be individual scholars or a team of scholars, either from HathiTrust member institutions or non-members, though 3 award spots will be reserved for applicants from HT member institutions. The HTRC ACS-dedicated staff will provide a general overview of HTRC components, the HT corpus and HT computational tools, to the awardees over the course of the project’s time period.
For this RFP, we are especially encouraging proposals that will utilize our Data Capsule (https://wiki.htrc.illinois.edu/display/COM/HTRC+Data+Capsule) to do analysis on in-copyright volumes in HathiTrust.
Proposals should be concise, and include project narrative, detailed description of the data you’re interested in engaging with, a schedule of completion, and list of deliverables. Full details of required components can be found in the full ACS RFP, available here: https://www.hathitrust.org/htrc_sp17_acs-rfp
Deadline for submission is 5:00 pm Eastern, June 19, 2017, submitted electronically.
