(11 March 2014) The HathiTrust Research Center is pleased to announce the recipients of 4 prototyping project awards, granted as part of the Workset Creation for Scholarly Analysis (WCSA) project funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and directed by J. Stephen Downie (PI), Tim Cole (co-PI), and Beth Plale (co-PI). Each project will receive $40,000 to develop a prototype over a nine-month period beginning in late April. HTRC received 15 proposals in response to an RFP released in November, and eight finalists were invited to present projects at a shortlist meeting in February.
Among the four projects selected was Semantic Analysis of Documents from the HathiTrust Corpus, submitted by Waikato University, New Zealand.
