Please take a moment to fill out a brief survey on your use of the TEI
in encoding serial publications and/or your use of TEI Independent
The Indiana University Digital Library Program is currently using the
TEI to encode the entire run of the Indiana Magazine of History, a
scholarly journal published by Indiana University's History Department
and the state Historical Society since 1905. To maintain the integrity
of the print publication, we decided to encode each issue as a separate
TEI.2 file. This left us with the challenge of capturing the
article-level metadata necessary for discovery. After considering a
number of alternatives (including MODS records and TEI Corpora), we
settled on the Independent Header as the best way to record more
granular bibliographic metadata, while keeping the TEI as the
authoritative metadata source.
Recognizing that this is a somewhat unconventional use of the
Independent Header, we are curious as to how others have tackled this
problem. Also, since the auxilliary schema supporting the Independent
Header is not included in P5, we would like to know if others are using
Independent Headers, and for what purpose.
If you are using the TEI to encode serial publications, or if you are
using TEI Independent Headers, please take a moment to fill out our
brief (9 questions) survey:
The survey will be open until March 21st.
Thank you for your time - your input is greatly appreciated!
