Peter Leonard, above, a doctoral student in Scandinavian  studies at the University of Washington, and UCLA professor Tim  Tangherlini have received $45,000 to create tools for large-scale  literary analysis through Google Books. Their subject will be 160,000 Swedish, Danish and Norwegian texts that  are part of the 12-million-volume Google Books collection, an assemblage  the blog Tech.Blorge called “a grand world library, a Library of  Alexandria on Steroids.” (photo: Mary Levin/UW)
