    Ben Schmidt, an assistant professor of history at Northeastern University and former graduate fellow at the Cultural Observatory, is quoted as saying that Harvard uses the OSDC to process and provide fast, structured access to the data from huge digital libraries: “Currently that means a public-facing visualization at arxiv.culturomics.org that scientists can use to explore that set, and a few databases under development including millions of newspaper pages, historical journal articles, as well as alternate routes for exploring the multi-dimensional data made possible by indexing the data at a fine-grained level and constructing queries after the fact.”
