Describing the RHL dataset:

The Red Hen Lab dataset contains more than 5 billion words and 500,000 hours of audiovisual files, as well as still image files, text, and so on. The dataset is held equally by the UCLA library and the Case Western Reserve University library, with tape backups and partial mirrors at other sites. The Red Hen Lab dataset ingests a great deal of data every day. The original  component of the Red Hen Lab dataset is The UCLA NewsScape Archive, which was originally developed by the Department of Communication at UCLA. Worldwide researchers have supplemented that Archive substantially.  Much of NewsScape consists of national and cable broadcasts from the US, with extensive coverage of the Los Angeles and Cleveland, OH media markets, but since 2011, Red Hen Lab has increasingly included non-news data and vast international data. Red Hen Lab now has substantial holdings in English (including UK and Indian English), Spanish (including from Mexico), French, Italian, European and Brazilian Portuguese, German, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Russian, Polish, Czech, Chinese, Arabic, Hindi, and Bengali.  Some of the collection is accessible through an online search engine at http://newsscape.library.ucla.edu/. For copyright reasons, access is currently restricted to RHL researchers.
