The open ebook community and the Internet Archive are pleased to announce the release of the first production version of the Open Publication Distribution System (OPDS) Catalog format for digital content. OPDS Catalogs are an open standard designed to enable the discovery of digital content from any location, on any device, and for any application.
The specification is available at: http://opds-spec.org/specs/opds-catalog-1-0.
DataCite held its first Summer Meeting in Hannover, Germany from June 7-8 and it was very successful. DataCite is a new international consortium of national libraries and data centers set up to "establish easier access to scientific research data on the Internet, increase acceptance of research data as legitimate, citable contributions to the scientific record, and to support data archiving that will permit results to be verified and re-purposed for future study."
LaTeX Lab is an open source implementation of a web based LaTeX editor for Google Docs.
Integration with Google Docs is achieved via GData API. The application is developed using GWT and hosted on the Google AppEngine. A CLSI implementation provides the link to the LaTeX compiler.
Code4Lib Journal has been a successful experiment. With success, questions have arisen about the scholarly nature and status of the Journal. In this editorial introduction we take a look at the question of Code4Lib Journal’s rejections rates and peer review status.
With the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation's Scholarly Communications and Information Technology programme, and in cooperation with Apex CoVantage, LLC, a leader in content management outsourcing, the Text Encoding Initiative is pleased to announce the launch of its new AccessTEI digitization program.
The following is an attempt to gradually build CSS for each TEI element, paralleling the default TEI stylesheets (while also potentially serving as a kind of discussion center for how the stylesheets ought to operate (see Formatting TEI documents on how there is a need for this despite TEI being agnostic as to output formatting), at least for issues pertaining solely to formatting as opposed to semantics), by indicating here necessary deviations from the XHTML stylesheets (due to CSS constraints) or potentially desirable alternatives, etc.).
Je reviens donc comme promis sur les métries et ce à quelques jours de la non-conférence du Thatcamp autour des digital humanities. Il n’y aura pas d’ateliers autour des métries. Je pense qu’il s’agit néanmoins d’un enjeu important tant il y a de nouveaux aspects à évaluer notamment autour du blog.
Le socle du métier
Je suis tenté de dire que nous devons être des manipulateurs de données, à tous les niveaux. Ce n’est pas tout de savoir cataloguer (créer les données) ou encoder en EAD ou en TEI, il faut aussi savoir exploiter ces données, ou comprendre comment elles sont exploitables (ou non).
ODD stands for "One Document Does it all". Part of the Text Encoding Initiative, it is an XML-based format for writing human-readable descriptions of XML files. ODD allows its users to customize the P5 version of the TEI XML formats by writing XML schemas in a literate programming fashion.
The purpose of the DARIAH TEI Demonstrator (TD) is to demonstrate the practical benefits of using TEI for the representation of digital resources of all kinds, but primarily of original source collections within the arts and humanities. The Demonstrator aims to make it easy for humanities researchers to share TEI-encoded texts with others, and to compare their encoding practice with that of others in the TEI community. It also aims to show the "TEI Advantage", by showing how TEI can be used for textual materials in many languages, both for richly encoded complex materials and for minimally encoded basic texts.
