What is TEI? What can you do with it? How can one get started with TEI editing? What avenues exist for publishing online with TEI encoded projects?
TEI (or the Text Encoding Initiative) is a way to prepare archival documents to be coded and searched electronically. This session aims to explore TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) through an examination of two mark up projects: the Charles Brockden Brown Electronic Archive and Scholarly Edition www.brockdenbrown.cah.ucf.edu/ and a digital edition of Virgil’s Aeneid (dissertation).
In addition to understanding how one can use an XML editing tool like <Oxygen> www.oxygenxml.com/, the session will illustrate the process for coding texts in basic structural ways along with more in-depth interpretive ways or tagging.
Time will also be spent exploring traditional publishing platforms such as XTF xtf.cdlib.org/ and more recent initiatives such TAPAS www.northeastern.edu/nulab/tapas/ It will also examine the state of cutting edge XML tools such as Juxta Editions.
