The HathiTrust subscription allows text mining subject to certain conditions. The HathiTrust policies are posted at  http://www.hathitrust.org/datasets . Elsevier also allows some text mining of its Science Direct database. You can view the Elsevier policy at https://www.elsevier.com/about/company-information/policies/text-and-data-mining. Some Gale historical databases may also be available for text mining.

Harvard Libraries has paid for for text mining access to select Proquest Historical Newspapers and Proquest Congressional Hearings and the Proquest file of Congressional Record (select historical date ranges).

Contact an HKS Librarian if you have any questions or want more details about text-mining Harvard database subscriptions.
