ENRICH Project and TEI P5 | ENRICH

Article on TEI P5 development and use in frame of ENRICH project by James Cummings and Lou Burnard, Oxford University

There are several quite distinct traditions for the description of primary sources, in particular manuscripts. Unlike books, such sources are unique objects, often of great cultural value, which are typically catalogued locally by the many different institutions holding them. This contributes further to the diversity of approaches taken. Great institutions are able to produce richly detailed, highly scholarly descriptions, while smaller or less well-resourced institutions cannot hope to do so. But with the widespread increase in the practice of digitization of such primary sources, there is increasing pressure to make their cataloguing uniform, so as to facilitate cross-site searching, and the sharing of information about resources held at many different institutions.

La discussion porte sur trois aspects :
1. La question se pose du niveau de personnalisation pertinent pour la TEI. Jusqu’à présent par exemple, la CEI est plutôt dans une impasse, sans doute par volonté de trop grande généricité.
2. L’aspect très intéressant, c’est le développement d’ontologies qui, contrairement aux index classiques, sont indépendants (mais nourris par) des documents. Ces ontologies promettent d’être des outils de recherche beaucoup plus puissants et c’est vrai que les projets sont encore balbutiants dans le domaine. On en est au point où on sait faire des éditions électroniques en TEI. La construction d’ontologies sur la base de listes d’autorités est sans doute le prochain défi.
3. Une partie de la discussion porte sur l’appropriation des méthodes et des outils par les chercheurs. De manière étonnante, le CCH ne semble pas travailler sur une base régulière avec Claire Warwick du Department of Information Studies à l’ University College London et …

The UVic Image Markup Tool Project

“Many tools exist for marking up text in XML. However, for a number of our projects, we need to be able to mark up images — by which I mean that we need to be able to describe and annotate images, and store the resulting data in TEI XML files. For this, relatively few tools exist, and those that do are either rather too complicated for novices not expert at markup (for example the Edition Production Technology) or use a proprietary file format (such as INote). Our aim is to produce a tool which creates conformant TEI P5 XML files, but which has a simple enough interface that it can be used by people with little or no experience in editing XML code.”


TEI-Extramural Journal (TEI-EJ) is a born digital, peer reviewed publication of the TEI and the TEI Education Special Interest Group. The project was initiated during spring 2009, when the Education SIG co-conveners (S. Schlitz and J. Nyhan) proposed developing an online publication to facilitate the aims of the TEI Education SIG and to educate members of the international digital humanities community, both within and beyond the TEI, about the TEI.

TEI-EJ project objectives are both experimental and ‘extramural’. The project seeks to define a new genre in academic publishing, where communicative modes are bidirectional rather than exclusively unidirectional, articles are media-driven as well as text-driven, and where the aims of publication extend beyond print journal mimesis to include education and community building.

In addition to peer reviewed articles, essays, interviews and reviews in text (underlyingly TEI-XML) and media (e.g. video, podcast wrapped in TEI-XML) formats, …

TEI: Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

TEI Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide an opportunity for TEI enthusiasts with similar interests to meet and exchange ideas. The TEI provides each SIG with web space, wiki space, a mailing list, and opportunities to meet at the Annual Members' Meeting. SIG activity might lead to any number of outputs, including training courses or documentation, proposals for extension or modification to the Guidelines, etc., no particular outcomes are required or expected. All SIGs are open to the public.

Anyone with an idea for a fresh area of activity or collaboration is invited to propose a new SIG. See the SIG rules page for details.

Bare-bones TEI « Messages in a Bottle

Note: in searching for Bare-bones TEI on the TEI Consortium site just now, I discovered that someone has produced a similar profile, called ‘Bare TEI’. [Further research shows that although the page on customizations does not identify the authors, the work was done originally by Laurent Romary and later edited by Syd Bauman, Lou Burnard, and possibly also Sebastian Rahtz.] This may be worth exploring, for those seeking a minimal profile of TEI. Unfortunately, I haven’t found any usable documentation for Bare TEI, so I don’t know the design principles that govern it, and the DTD is full of undefined ghost elements (or ‘zombies’), which renders it unfortunately cumbersome in a syntax-directed editor. So for now I’m sticking with bare-bones TEI.
