KB Labs – Tutorial – SMURF

SMURF is a tool for visualisation of how the Danish language has evolved through exploration of words and sentences used in Danish newspapers since the 18th century.

The search tool uses data from The Royal Danish Library’s digital collection of newspapers, which consists of more than 35 million pages located in Mediestream. SMURF is quick and effective for researchers and students to use, when they wish to analyse the use and popularity of words.
