I have several Torah thoughts that may potentially be novel, and I am searching to see what other commentators have written on these subjects and whether some or all of these thoughts were introduced previously by other commentators.

Websites such as www.Otzar.org and www.Hebrewbooks.org are very helpful to do searches within Seforim, given their huge databases and the ability to do "keyword searches". However, since I am not the most proficient when it comes to both the ordinary non-technical delving into Seforim, and am neither a very savvy user of "online search" tools, I was hoping I could find someone whom I could retain and pay to do some extensive searching of several hours.

In other words, I would provide all the relevant details on the Chiddushim/P'shatim regarding which we are searching, and hopefully a Talmid Chochom who is also technically-proficient could then research using these aforementioned databases, or better yet, he may also have access to other proprietary and exclusive databases, etc.

Does anyone know whom I could contact or where I could go to obtain such help?

    You could try the coffee room of Yeshiva World News, right profile of people knowledgeable in tech and Torah - just like here of course. I would highly recommend running a test where you know the answers before hiring someone – mbloch Jun 11 '18 at 15:56

    Unless (or even despite that) you have innumerable novel ideas you can simply post them here at MY and ask if users know of earlier progenitors. – Oliver Jun 11 '18 at 17:04
  • A number of kolelim pay people to learn. You might want to try offering to fund the yeshiva or organization that funds these people. – DanF Jun 11 '18 at 17:42
