A Search Engine for Electronic Literature

Goals of the project:

  • Development of a search interface and implementation of shared metadata standards that would join the databases for nine international research centers in electronic literature, allowing researchers to cross-search the complete archives, implementing: a web-based search engine for e-lit to display results from across the consortium databases;
  • A unified name authority system to improve the data harvested by the search engine and to create more faceted and complex search results;
  • And a training/how-to framework to extend our initiative to include future projects and partners and to establish standards and best practices in using the e-lit search engine.
