This is a workshop I am co-organizing which I thought might be of interest to a some on the list.

Cheers, Paul R Butler


Join expert TEI instructors Julia Flanders and Syd Bauman for a two-and-a-half-day, hands-on TEI workshop. The workshop also includes a gentle introduction to XML.

What is the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI)? According to the TEI website, "the TEI is an international and interdisciplinary standard that helps libraries, museums, publishers, and individual scholars represent all kinds of literary and linguistic texts for online research and teaching, using an encoding scheme that is maximally expressive and minimally obsolescent." A seminal effort in the humanities computing community, its role in libraries is growing.

Participants will meet on the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) campus at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) building on the evening of Friday, February 12, and all day Saturday and Sunday, February 13th and 14th.  

Space is limited for this event. The cost is $25 for current UIUC students, $50 per person for UIUC faculty, staff, and alumni, and $150 for non-UIUC affiliates. You must sign up and pay in advance to attend, and cancellation fees apply.
