The HTRC website is also called HTRC Analytics. It is the gateway to most tools and services. 


To use HTRC Analytics, you will need to sign up for an account. From within HTRC Analytics, you can access web-based algorithms, the Data Capsule administrative dashboard, and links to shared datasets.

Sign Up

Go to HTRC Analytics: https://analytics.hathitrust.org/ and on the top right of the webpage, click on the "Sign Up" button. 


On the Sign Up page, enter requested information together with username you intend to use and password. 


The password must meet these requirements:                                    

Password must be more than 15 characters long.

Password must contain characters from three of the following five categories:

      • Uppercase characters of European languages (A through Z, with diacritic marks, Greek and Cyrillic characters)

      • Lowercase characters of European languages (a through z, sharp-s, with diacritic marks, Greek and Cyrillic characters)

      • Base 10 digits (0 through 9)

      • Nonalphanumeric characters

      • Any Unicode character that is categorized as an alphabetic character but is not uppercase or lowercase. This includes Unicode characters from Asian languages.

Password must not contain any white spaces.

Password must not contain your user ID.

Trouble shooting: if you can't successfully sign up

You need to have an academic unit email address to sign up. We maintain a growing list of allowed email domains, e.g. emails ending with .edu or edu.ac or edu.tw, and so if you find you can't successfully sign up with your academic email then it's probably your email domain is not on the list. In this situation, please submit an account request by clicking on the "Request an account" button in the error message you see on the sign-up page.

Activate your account

You will receive an email in the email that you registered. Go to your email inbox, and follow the activation link in the email to activate your account.

Sign In

Now you have created an account on HTRC Analytics, you can sign in. From the top right of the page, click "Sign in" and then enter your username and password on the log-in page.
