We're doing this for both journals and monographic collections. We
started with a data model capturing the structural and descriptive
metadata needed to encode the structure of the source material for
these "facsimile editions":
We then mapped the metadata into the appropriate TEI (Lite) structures:
This model uses uncorrected OCR text for searching; and example can
be seen at http://libtext.library.wisc.edu/FRUS/. We're doing it as
SGML, but I don't think there's anything preventing it from being
expressed as XML.
We're currently working on an interface to support fully marked-up
text within this framework (the motivation for doing this in TEI in
the first place), giving users both etext and facsimile versions of
the same works, using the same TEI files.
Please let me know if you'd like any more information.
Dear TEI list,
I am currently involved in a project to make some 19th century
British journals available online, and have been looking hopefully on
the TEI Consortium website at the list of projects using TEI, to find
a dtd that I could use as an initial template. Perhaps I am blind,
but the only ones that seem to be freely available are for other
types of text. We plan to display images of the printed pages and
various indexes, as well, hopefully, as the scanned text marked up in
XML for searching. As a pilot, we are focusing on the satirical
journal Tomahawk. The project is based at Birkbeck College,
University of London, and directed by Professor Isobel Armstrong
I am a novice in using XML, so would would be grateful for any
assistance, comments, information about similar projects - and, in
particular, any pointers to dtds which I might be able to try out!
