for posting this example. I am a bit puzzled by the fact that
it seems to contain two bibliographic descriptions of the same
thing (the 1910 edition of the work), one using bibl, and one
using biblFull. Is that common practice in the DTA? It seems
rather misleading -- if you had a text for which there were
two different sources, would there be *four* descriptions?
[log in to unmask]">Dear Lou, the information about the original source text ist provided in <sourceDesc>, as in the following example: <sourceDesc> <bibl type="M">Löwenfeld, Leopold: Student und Alkohol. München, 1910.</bibl> <biblFull> <titleStmt> <title level="m" type="main">Student und Alkohol</title> <author> <persName ref="http://d-nb.info/gnd/117168815"> <surname>Löwenfeld</surname> <forename>Leopold</forename> </persName> </author> </titleStmt> <editionStmt> <edition n="1"/> </editionStmt> <publicationStmt> <publisher> <name>M. Riegersche Universitäts-Buchhandlung</name> </publisher> <pubPlace>München</pubPlace> <date type="publication">1910</date> </publicationStmt> </biblFull> </sourceDesc> So basically it is not mentioned here (as in your example) that it is the project gutenberg-version of "Student and Alkohol", which is also true, because after the conversion into DTA-base format it is not the gutenberg version anymore. The information that gutenberg is the source from which the source derives is, however, already caputered within the <respStmt>s. So the difference between your encoding and the DTA-encoding is, that you regard the gutenberg ebook-version as source text (while the original source is just a <relatedItem>, while the DTA regards the "original" book as source text. To me the latter seems at first sight more reasonable for my understanding of <sourceText>, but you might have an explanation for your choice of encoding <title>The Project Gutenberg EBook of Tono Bungay, by H. G. Wells</title> instead of <title>Tono Bungay</title> (+ the other bibl-components)? Best, Frederike Am Sa., 22.

But how does DTA record the source text (e.g. printed book) from which a source text (e.g. gutenberg text) was derived? best Lou (apologetically unable to cope with German) On 21/09/18 18:13, Frederike Neuber wrote: Dear Lou, in the German Textarchive are often integrated text and image resources from the www, also from gutenberg.org. The base format of the German Textarchiv forsees the provision of <respStmt> as you suggested too. Compared to your suggestion, they provide several respStmt for tasks that they defined as seperate; "provision of transcription", "provision of images", "curation/conversion of data". While the former two most of the times refer to sources on the WWW, the latter refers to specific persons who had the task to actually integrate these existing sources into the new context. Another difference to your suggestion is that the DTA-format provides a date, to indicate when the transcription/image has been integrated, which I think is very clever, since content on the internet can change easy. Here is a code snippet with a few comments, that might be clearer than any of my explanations: <!-- respStmt for the transcription, taken from gutenberg.org --> <respStmt> <orgName>gutenberg.org</orgName> <resp> <note type="remarkResponsibility">Bereitstellung der Texttranskription und Auszeichnung in der Syntax von gutenberg.org.</note> <!-- note that during integration the transcription might have changed --> <note type="remarkRevisionDTA">Bitte beachten Sie, dass die aktuelle Transkription (und Textauszeichnung) mittlerweile nicht mehr dem Stand zum Zeitpunkt der Übernahme aus gutenberg.org entsprechen muss.</note> <!-- source --> <ref target=" http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/2/9/3/2/29327/29327-h/29327-h.htm" <http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/2/9/3/2/29327/29327-h/29327-h.htm>/> <!-- import date --> <date type="importDTA">2013-03-18T13:54:31Z</date> </resp> </respStmt> <respStmt> <!-- respStmt fpr the images --> <orgName>gutenberg.org</orgName> <resp> <note type="remarkResponsibility">Bereitstellung der Bilddigitalisate</note> <ref target=" http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/2/9/3/2/29327/29327-page-images/" <http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/2/9/3/2/29327/29327-page-images/>/> <date type="importDTA">2013-03-18T13:54:31Z</date> </resp> </respStmt> <respStmt> <!-- respStmt for the person who converted the gutenberg source-text to the DTA-Base format --> <persName> <forename>Frederike</forename> <surname>Neuber</surname> </persName> <resp> <note type="remarkResponsibility">Konvertierung nach XML/TEI gemäß DTA-Basisformat.</note> <date type="importDTA">2013-03-18T13:54:31Z</date> </resp> </respStmt> In case you speak German, here is also a documentation.http://www.deutschestextarchiv.de/doku/basisformat/mdRespStmt.html Hope that helps, Best, Frederike Am Fr., 21.

Dear Lou, what about providing a TEI-mapping of PROV-O, the W3C provenance ontology? https://www.w3.org/TR/prov-o PROV-O, for all its shortcomings, already takes into account FRBR, something your example was pointing to (deliberately or accidentally). The example for the relation prov:hadPrimarySource is a translated and formatted text from the Gutenberg project. :) https://www.w3.org/TR/prov-o/#hadPrimarySource Regards, -- Gioele Barabucci <[log in to unmask]> <[log in to unmask]>
