Open Books: Concept Search

Open Books: Conceptsearch is unlike most other search engines in that it relies on a technique called concept search to show you material that is most relevant to your research. As with other search engines like Google, you can enter one or two search terms to quickly get results. However, by learning a bit more about concept search, you can harness the power of Open Books to do much more sophisticated searches: you can match ideas expressed in your queries, rather than just a keyword. This project applies concept search techniques to the ECCO (Eighteenth Century Collections Online) corpus.
