Notes

Abstract: Historically, academic libraries have contributed to the development of the TEI Guidelines, largely in response to mandates to provide access to and preserve electronic texts, often through authority control, subject analysis, and bibliographic description. But the advent of mass digitization efforts involving simple scanning of pages and OCR called into question such a role for libraries in text encoding. This paper presents the results of a survey targeting library employees to learn more about text encoding practices and to gauge current attitudes toward text encoding.

This is the preprint version of an article forthcoming in the Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative.
