Title: The feasibility of wide-area textual analysis systems in libraries: A practical analysis
Author(s): Price-Wilkin, John
Subject(s): Textual analysis Academic libraries
Abstract: This paper discusses the textual and software resources necessary for the establishment of a generalized wide-area textual analysis system. A distinction is made between textual analytical systems and text retrieval systems. The necessity of using standards and open systems in implementing such systems is emphasized. The paper includes a review of critical characteristics of generalized analytical software. It is argued that the resources necessary for the establishment of a service are currently available. The paper concludes with a discussion of deficiencies in current resources and standards. The author also includes an appendix discussing the need to incorporate a recognition of structure in textual retrieval systems.
