A reminder that Matt Kisner and I would like to have any purchase requests for FY 2012-13 to us by March 15th so that we can spend out departmental acquisition funds before the end of the fiscal year. As of February 7, 2013, the department has $3,870.95 available to purchase monographs, e-books, or microforms. Be thinking about the areas of growth and expansion over the next five years that you as a program anticipate so that the Libraries can buy the materials necessary to support the department.
The Corpus of Historical American English (400 million words, 1810-2009):
COHA brings together a curator data set of 400 million words with a sophisticated search interface allowing researchers to track the culture use of words over time and within genres of text from the same period. Such a resource can provide useful data to help illuminate the evolution of morale and ethical debates.
