The HathiTrust reports that “From May 21 through May 23, the HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) held its first ever hackathon at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

“We held the event as part of the National Endowment for the Humanities-funded Tools for Open Research and Computation with HathiTrust: Leveraging Intelligent Text Extraction (TORCHLITE) project. TORCHLITE uses HTRC’s new Extracted Features (EF) API. An API, or application programming interface, is a way for computer programs to communicate with each other, allowing access to data in a standardized way. The EF API allows programmatic access to metadata and annotated tokens (words) for more than 17 million volumes from the HathiTrust Digital Library collection, including in‑copyright material.
