MONK is a digital environment designed to help humanities scholars discover and analyze patterns in the texts they study (see the table at the bottom of this page for detailed information on what is in the MONK datastore, and terms of availability). The MONK project has been generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, from 2007-2009, and InCommon integration has been supported in 2009 by the CIC Library Directors. All code produced by the project is open source. MONK has a publicly available instance with texts contributed by Indiana University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of Virginia, and Martin Mueller at Northwestern University.
As part of a collaboration with Matthew G. Kirschenbaum at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), Stahmer coded portions of the Monk user interface that allow users to define Worksets and perform feature comparison.
