BigDIVA Will Help Browse/Search Humanities Content

There’s a new tool for searching/browsing humanities content, and it’s called BigDIVA. “BigDIVA, which stands for Big Data Infrastructure Visualization Application, offers a visual interface for navigating scholarly, peer-reviewed humanities content, such as historical documents, images of art and artifacts, and any scholarship associated with those things. The system displays results in an infographic format that is organized by category, such as journal articles or online digital collections; and color coding distinguishes those items you have immediate access to from items that a user doesn’t have permission or a subscription to access.” Looks like it’s going to be a subscription service.
