The purpose of this article is to outline possibilities for the integration of text mining and other digital humanities computing techniques into library catalogs and “discovery systems”.
The approach has been to survey existing text mining apparatus and apply this to traditional library systems.
Through this process it is found that there are many ways library interfaces can be augmented to go beyond the processes of find and get and evolve to include processes of use and understand.
To the best of the author's knowledge, this type of augmentation has yet to be suggested or implemented across libraries.
