HathiTrust Research Center Update: New Data Capsule Feature

April 19, 2023

HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) recently updated the Data Capsule tool to include a new feature that enables users to share their data capsules as customized templates. Users can fine-tune their data capsule to their exact needs such as including additional software, models, scripts, and outside data, which they can save as a customized template. The template can then be made available to  other approved data capsule users to copy and use for their own text analysis. This feature is especially useful for classroom and workshop use because it allows instructors to set up a data capsule template with all the features they need ahead of time.

Users are currently allowed to create and save two templates. For more information on how to create templates, please visit the documentation. As always, we are available for consultations and help at htrc-help@hathitrust.org.
