A Search Engine for Electronic Literature

Development of a search interface and implementation of shared metadata standards that would join the databases for nine international research centers in electronic literature, allowing researchers to cross-search the complete archives.

Our Level II grant proposal emerges from the Consortium for Electronic Literature (CELL), a partnership founded by the Electronic Literature Organization (ELO) and joining nine research centers, all developing online database projects devoted to research in electronic literature (e-lit). Building on existing achievements, we request $59,973 to implement the following: a web-based search engine for e-lit to display results from across the consortium databases; a unified name authority system to improve the data harvested by the search engine and to create more faceted and complex search results; and a training/how-to framework to extend our initiative to include future projects and partners and to establish standards and best practices in using the e-lit search engine.
