Tools and documentation

This is a large and complex collection of texts, and it can be difficult to find useful routes through the texts or to retrieve useful subcollections. In addition to the three search pages and the rhyme page, the DVPP site also allows you to create your own anthologies, which you can then share with anyone via a simple URL.
We provide a facsimile viewer so you can browse the poetry pages of periodicals in page-image format, and for readers who would like to apply text analysis tools to the texts, we make a variety of downloads available, including plain-text subcollections of transcribed poems and spreadsheets of metadata.
You can also read our internal project documentation and look at our project build diagnostics, which track our progress and provide us with lists of issues needing attention.
