At this URL


you can see a publicly accessible demo that demonstrates nora, a
text- mining application intended to allow the exploration of verbal
patterns in text collections. Please note that from this introductory
page, you will follow a link to http://monk.lis.uiuc.edu:7070/monk,
where you will need to "signup" for an account (via the link directly
beneath the username/password text-entry area). This account is used
only to store your work products, and you can create the account unilaterally.

Funding for this work was provided by the Andrew W. Mellon
Foundation. Work on this project has been done by many individuals
(all of whom are listed at http://www.noraproject.org/team.php) over
the last two and a half years. The data is for this demo is being
pulled live from eXist and Lucene; the user interface is written in
OpenLaszlo. Text collections in the demo are used by permission of
the Dickinson Electronic Archive and the Institute for Advanced
Technology in the Humanities, the University of Virginia Library, and
the Academic Affairs Library at the University of North Carolina,
Chapel Hill. Source code can be downloaded at http://
www.noraproject.org/downloads.php. The nora project is now concluded,
but the work represented here is being carried on as part of MONK
