The purpose of the showcases for the application of methods and tools in Computational Literary Studies (CLS) presented here is to illustrate, in a concrete, visual and interactive way, how some of the key methods in CLS work when they are applied to collections of literary texts. In addition, the showcases are designed as demonstrations, with a relatively low threshold for access, of how tools and datasets as elements of an integrated infrastructure such as the one developed in CLS INFRA, can be used in research. This is done here in the hope that the showcases also help us draw additional scholars towards learning about and using such methods, datasets and infrastructure services.
