This repository holds a collection of R tools for performing various tasks such as scraping web pages, loading xml files from URL, calculating word frequency from a text, plotting word frequency on a bar graph, etc. It is intended to serve as toolkit for Digital Humanists interesting in performing various types of textual analysis.
The tools were initially developed as course material for a Rare Books School (https://rarebookschool.org/) course on Digital Approaches to Bibliography and Book History co-taught by Carl Stahmer and Benjamin Pauley.
Documentation can be found at the repository Wiki at https://bitbucket.org/cstahmer/r-text-tools/wiki/Home.
