Perspectives on Text Encoding Initiative Projects From Current Digital Library Managers

by Dickie, Grant

Abstract (Summary)
This study seeks to analyze the feasibility of these projects that involve the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines and standards for text encoding of scholarly material. Many libraries and other institutions are initiating digitization projects that involve text-markup. For this reason, such projects should be analyzed for feasibility and usefulness. Eighteen project managers and field professionals involved in TEI projects completed an online survey to assess the overall feasibility of their projects. Several factors were used in the assessment such as amount of funding, completion of project, satisfaction with the encoding, and user feedback.
