DMDS: XML-based Metadata

Sep 26 2017 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Sherman Centre for Digital Scholarship, Mills Memorial Library

This workshop will introduce the basics of XML-based schemas used for digital encoding of texts, artwork, and other media. First, we’ll briefly discuss the ways in which such encoding of texts can be useful, using examples from the instructor’s own research and providing some sense of what you can do with XML-encoded data that will facilitate both close reading and big data approaches.  Participants will then be given a chance to try out text encoding using TEI and texts they will have provided.  No prior experience in TEI is necessary.  Post workshop drop-in: Friday September 28. Instructor: Matthew Davis
