The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC), founded in 2010, is managed by Indiana University Bloomington and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under an agreement with the HathiTrust Board of Governors and the University of Michigan. The HTRC mission supports new knowledge creation through novel computational uses of the Hathitrust Digital Library (HTDL). Through the introduction of the concept of distant publishing, this short paper will discuss ideas for data and software publication that support the HTRC non-consumptive research methodologies and offer scholars new methods for research inquiry.
