TEI details

The McGill Library’s Chapbook Collection project is also a text encoding project.

Rare Books and Special Collections is creating a TEI XML file for each of the chapbooks using TEI P5:Guidelines for Electronic Text Encoding and Interchange by the TEI Consortium. Level 4 coding from Best Practices for TEI in Libraries is the goal of the project, to enable future functionality using the encoded TEI text file.

The project is seeking partnerships with scholars to enhance the level of encoding and extend the use of these files in the support of digital humanities research.
