The HathiTrust corpus: A Digital Library for musicology research?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The HathiTrust Digital Library (HTDL) consists of digitized print materials contributed from the collections of some of the foremost research libraries of the world. The HTDL contains over 11 million volumes comprising approximately 3.9 billion pages. In this paper, we describe an exploratory bibliometric study to examine and characterize music-related content in the HTDL. Our study provides an overview of the music-related content in the HTDL as seen through the lenses of format, genre, language, and chronology. We seek to determine in what ways, if any, the materials in HTDL could be considered to form a unique music digital library for use by musicology scholars and students. We also suggest ways in which the music-related content of the HTDL holdings could be made more useful to users with musicological needs and interests.
