Someone OCRed 600+ Volumes of Greek!

Bruce Robertson — of Mount Allison University fame — sent this missive to the DigitalClassicist list and graciously gave permission for it to be posted here:

I’d like to announce the result of last year’s campaign to OCR a significant portion of the polytonic Greek volumes on archive.org using a specially allocated HPC environment from Compute Canada. 
 
At http://heml.mta.ca/lace you’ll find page images for over 600 volumes, with corresponding OCR output and freely downloadable archives of all stages of processing. 
 
A selection of interesting volumes and ideas for their use appears at http;//heml.mta.ca/lace/gallery
