Introduction to Text Encoding
Instructor: Constance Crompton
Classroom: McLaughlin Library Room 254
This four-day introduction to the theory and practice of encoding electronic texts for the humanities is designed for individuals who are contemplating embarking on a text-encoding project. The course is also suitable for those who would like to better understand the philosophy, theory, and practicalities of encoding in XML (Extensible Markup Language) using the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines in order to aid others who are embarking on a project or to facilitate the assessment of others' TEI-based scholarship. No prior experience with XML is assumed, but the course will move quickly through the basics.
