CETH Workshop on Documenting Electronic Texts
CETH Technical Report Number 2
In May 1994, the Center for Electronic Texts in the Humanities
sponsored an invitational workshop on documenting electronic
primary source materials in the humanities. The goal of the
workshop was to work toward a clearer understanding of the
relationship between the TEI header, the MARC record, and the
current international cataloging rules, with an objective of
establishing how far they meet the needs of scholars, librarians,
publishers and software developers who work with these materials.
A report on this workshop written by Lisa R. Horowitz is now
available as part of a series of Technical Reports published by
CETH addressing various issues of electronic texts in the
Also available is Technical Report Number 1, Guidelines for
Cataloging Monographic Electronic Texts at the Center for
Electronic Texts in the Humanities, by Annelies Hoogcarspel. This
document describes the procedures developed at the Center for
Electronic Texts in the Humanities for cataloging electronic texts
of primary source humanities material on RLIN, the Information
Network of the Research Libraries Group.
Reports are available for $15 each ($20 international orders).
