I have been exploring JSTOR's Understanding Shakespeare API. A few years ago, JSTOR Labs, in collaboration with the Folger Library, ran a Regular Expressions search of every line from the Folger's Digital Texts against their entire OCR'd database of publications. The result is a sort of index to Shakespeare citations in JSTOR.

As I work to write up some comprehensive results from my work with this data, you can find preliminary visualizations below.
