The papers selected for this issue of the Infotheca journal present contributions of the Serbian team in the COST action CA16204 Distant Reading for European Literary History. The project started in 2017 with a plan to create a network of researchers which would develop resources and methods within the Distant Reading paradigm – usage of computational methods in the analysis of a large group of literary texts. One of the ultimate goals was to establish good, innovative methods and techniques of computational analysis of texts from this specific group. One of the most important achievements of this action is the development of a multilingual corpus, European Literary Text Collection - ELTeC which contains 100 novels first published in the period 1840-1920 for many European languages, including Serbian. All texts in this corpus were selected, prepared and annotated using the common principles.
