The enhancement and integration of the Bookworm analytical tool with the HathiTrust Digital Library, which holds 3.9 billion pages of digitized materials. Scholars would be able build individual collections of materials to be studied and to discover new textual use patterns across the corpus.

The HathiTrust + Bookworm (HT+BW) Project provides scholars new ways to explore trends within the massive HathiTrust corpus. Detailed exploration of metadata facets adds analytic value over such tools as Google Ngram Viewer. It enables scholars to explore personal worksets and aids discovery of new works. It will help the HathiTrust Research Center provide computational access to the HathiTrust corpus. Open-source improvements to Bookworm code will increase value to other large text projects.
