Title:MONK in the Library
Author(s):Unsworth, John
Abstract:The MONK Project (Metadata Offer New Knowledge)has developed a collection of literary texts in English from about 1600-1900, in a variety of genres, from both commercial and public domain sources, totaling 150 million words. Texts have been brought into a uniform XML format, part-of-speech tagged, and ingested into a database, with a user-interface that facilitates statistical analysis of texts and sub-collections. In the current phase of the project, MONK is being brought up as a library service hosted at the University of Illinois Library; it is also the first service to be offered under InCommon, the Shibboleth-based authentication service that all the CIC (Big Ten) Universities have adopted. This presentation will briefly review MONK itself, and then discuss the real-world challenges of next-generation research services in library contexts.
