Description
The TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) is a multidisciplinary, academic initiative which aims to standardise the coding of documents as far as possible in order to facilitate the exchange and analysis of them. Used in the fields of research in Human Sciences (linguistics, history, literature, etc), in digital publishing and in certain libraries, the TEI provides solutions in the form of XML for beginners and experts alike. Thanks to its modular system, it can be adapted to the specific requirements of projects in order to edit, distribute, analyse, take advantage of, and view coded texts. The TEI consortium offers coding solutions specifically designed for literary documents and also enables us to develop them. The Centre d'Études Supérieures de la Renaissance (CESR) and the team at the “Bibliothèques Virtuelles Humanistes” (BVH) in Tours have been running this course since 2005 with the number of attendees ever increasing due to the growing possibilities in Digital Humanities. Initially delivered to the students following the Master’s course “Patrimoine Écrit et Édition Numérique” (“Literary Texts and Digital Publishing”) at the CESR, this annual event is specifically aimed at professionals whether they are researchers, technicians, or have a background in the teaching of or as a librarian of literary texts.
