The goal of the NORA project is to produce software for discovering, visualizing, and exploring significant patterns across large collections of full-text humanities resources in existing digital libraries. The Clear Browser (shown above) provides a number of blank kernels that can be configured by the user through a data mining “training” process, then be applied to the larger collection. This sketch shows a total collection of 5000 author names, with a subset selected by the kernel.
