Apr 12, 2017 · Monica Gillen

The Iowa State University Library is a member of the HathiTrust. The Advanced Collaborative Support (ACS) service at the HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) offers scholars an opportunity to collaborate with an expert consultant to solve problems related to computational analysis. Scholars who earn awards will have access to the entire HathiTrust collection and staff will give guidance for its use, and services and tools of the Research Center. Project assistance might include identifying applicable volumes for use or selecting tools to analyze content.

HTRC plans to award 4-6 ACS projects, with at least three reserved for applicants from member institutions. Applicants are urged to contact?acs@hathitrust.org?in advance of proposal submission to discuss eligibility, project details, prerequisites, and HTRC support. Complete application details are available on the HathiTrust website.
