SAVE THE DATE!
Mark your calendars. HTRC is hosting its second annual HTRC UnCamp in September 2013 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 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.
Who should attend? The HTRC UnCamp is targeted to the digital humanities tool developers, researchers and librarians of HathiTrust member institutions, and graduate students. Attendees will be asked for their input in planning sessions, so please 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.
Additional information about the UnCamp will be posted to http://www.hathitrust.org/htrc_uncamp2013 as it becomes available.
If you have questions or suggestions regarding the HTRC Uncamp please feel free to contact Megan Senseney, HTRC Project Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-244-5574.
We look forward to seeing you in Champaign!
