Visualization of most-assigned college texts

Check out this amazing tool from the Open Culture Syllabus Project, which contains a database of 7,292,573 college course syllabi and 1,138,841 of the most frequently assigned books and scholarly papers on those syllabi. (#1 is Strunk & White; “The Economics of the Undead,” to which I contributed a chapter, is assigned in six courses!) This database is presented visually on a searchable, user-friendly, Google Maps-style interface. More details about this fantastic project are available here. Hat tip: Christine Corcos (@LpcProf).
