TEI Simple Workshop, Oxford, May 27 2015

 

Working with TEI Simple and its Processing Model

Wednesday, May 27th 2015 9:30-17:30

Do you work with collections of early-modern and modern printed material encoded in TEI or support people who do? Do you struggle with transformations from TEI to publication formats?

Are you interested in how TEI Simple can help you process your documents and document your publishing choices?

Come and learn how to apply the TEI Simple processing model to your data under the guidance of TEI SIMPLE experts. Check if you can achieve your publishing goals within a TEI Simple infrastructure.

We will give a basic introduction to the rationale behind TEI Simple and the tools that have been developed, and then spend the rest of the day working through participant’s material and texts from TEI Simple reference corpora.

The goal of the workshop is to test the TEI Simple framework on real life projects and with real editors, assessing not only whether it is complete and powerful enough, but also how easy it is to use for editors and developers working with TEI documents.

TEI Simple

Northwestern University is pleased to announce a matching grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the development of Tei Simple, which seeks to lower the entry barriers to working with TEI documents by combining a new highly constrained  and prescriptive subset of the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines with a  a “cradle to grave” processing model that associates the TEI Simple schema with explicit and standardized options for displaying and querying texts. A major driver for this project has been the imminent release into the public domain of some 25,000 TEI-encoded texts from Early English Books Online (EEBO), but  the project aims more broadly at creating a friendlier and more interoperable environment for working with digital surrogates of books in European languages from the Early modern period into the 20th century.
