Published on

JSTOR Labs has been exploring new ways to use the JSTOR Corpus, leading to a series of innovative projects in which content from the JSTOR archive is “mashed up” alongside other content. In this talk, we will demonstrate content-mashups that Labs has developed, including Understanding Shakespeare and Text Analyzer. We will also describe how both open, collaborative partnerships and natural language processing have made these innovative projects possible.
