Abstract

This paper demonstrates the use of the ESTC as a representation of material history through the extraction and parsing of its data in a way which allows it to be used in social network analysis. In doing this it makes two contributions. The first is methodological, outlining how such a transformation of data is possible. The second is historical, by demonstrating how this data can be used to support historical claims.
