The HTRC Data Capsule gives a researcher a secure, virtual computer environment researcher driven text analysis on the HathiTrust corpus. All users may access public domain items. Computational access to items in copyright is available ONLY to member-affiliated researchers.
Start and stop your Capsule on HTRC Analytics.
When your Capsule is running, access it from the desktop of your computer using either a VNC client or through SSH. You will only be able to use SSH when the Capsule is in Maintenance mode.
Each Capsule has two modes: Maintenance and Secure. In Maintenance mode, you will be able to access the network and install software. In Secure mode, you will not be able to access the network, but will be able to access the HTRC Data API.
Existing Data Capsule users or new Data Capsule requesters from member institutions have the exclusive option to select “Full Corpus Access,” which includes copyrighted items.
Data and tools can easily enter a user's capsule, but anything leaving a capsule must undergo review prior to release to the user. Only derived, non-consumptive data exports are allowed from HTRC Data Capsule.
