Abstract

Focuses on the setting up of a distributed computing system to access resources on multiple machines at the Center for Electronic Texts in the Humanities at Rutgers University. Outlines the features of the chosen software and systems and the benefits that grid computing provides – improvement in productivity and multi‐disciplinary collaboration, the sharing of resources, and the optimal use of computing capabilities.
