Computers are not just for quantitative analysis. Scholarship in the humanities and qualitative social sciences can also benefit. This essay begins the task of outlining a personal scholarly system called Famulus, or scholar's assistant, for assisting individual qualitative scholars with their research and scholarly activity. Key to the design is a proposed modular system of classifying the items in bibliographic entries. Attention is also called to emerging systems of Keywords in Context (KWIC).
