TEI in Libraries

Text Encoding InitiativeImage via WikipediaThe TEI Consortium's Special Interest Group on Libraries has recently completed a major revision to the “Best Practices for TEI in Libraries” (http://purl.org/TEI/teiinlibraries). The revised Best Practices contain updated versions of the widely adopted encoding levels, which span from fully automated reformatting of print content to deep encoding to support content analysis and scholarly uses. A substantially revised TEI Header section supports greater interoperability between text collections and MARC records. In addition, the Best Practices now include schemas for encoding levels 1-4, providing a mechanism to better ensure conformance and interoperability of digital texts.

The “Best Practices for TEI in Libraries” formerly known as the "TEI Text Encoding in Libraries: Guidelines for Best Encoding Practices" will be officially unveiled at the 2011 TEI Members' Meeting and Conference currently underway at the University of Würzburg in Germany and at the end of this month at the Digital Library Federation Fall 2011 Forum to be held in Baltimore, 10/31-11/2.--From the e-mail announcement.
