A project focused on the concept of "linked data" that would develop a data-mining and cross-referencing tool allowing search across many humanities repositories of primary and secondary sources, such as JSTOR and the Library of Congress. The prototype will use the medieval travel narrative The Travels of Sir John Mandeville as its test case.

Bibliopedia is a tool that will perform advanced data-mining & cross-referencing between secondary literature & primary texts & original documents. It will search repositories like JSTOR, Google Scholar, & Project MUSE for full-text citations that mention an original document, analyze the articles & books found, and save the results in a publicly accessible database that will form the basis of an online research collaboratory. The platform will also allow for human-machine collaboration to correct errors in metadata. Bibliopedia will also allow users to create browsable & customizable bibliographies of all the works cited by each article & book. Most importantly, it will perform automated textual analysis, data extraction, cross-referencing, & visualizations of the relationships between texts & authors. Our aim is to serve the research and pedagogical needs of the broadest possible range of humanities scholars.
