“Digital catalogues, digital libraries: using the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) for collections data”

 

In this event, we will talk about the creation of digital datasets for cultural heritage materials. We will focus on TEI specifically as the basis of collaborative work between libraries, archives and researchers, and also between institutions. We will use the examples of FIHRIST as a long running and well established union catalogue of manuscript descriptions, and of Cambridge Digital Library as a repository which combines descriptive and image data.”
