Massive digital archives such as the Internet Archive offer researchers tantalising possibilities for the recovery of lost, forgotten and neglected literary texts. Yet the reality can be very frustrating due to limitations in the design of the archives and the tools available for exploring them. This CDH Guided Project supports researchers in understanding the issues they are likely to encounter and developing practical methods for delving into massive digital archives.
