HTRC operates a competitively-awarded program called Advanced Collaborative Support. Awardees of this program benefit from staff time and expertise and compute resources in order to complete a text and data mining project that they would otherwise be unable to accomplish. The ACS program is run on a roughly annual basis. Read about past projects:
