L-70. Electronic Texts and Images
David Seaman :: 7-11 March 2005, University of Virginia

A practical exploration of the research, preservation, editing, and
pedagogical uses of electronic texts and images in the humanities. The
course will center around the creation of a set of archival-quality
etexts and digital images, for which we shall also create an Encoded
Archival Description guide. Topics include: SGML tagging and
conversion; using the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines; the form and
implications of XML; publishing on the World Wide Web; and the
management and use of online texts. Details about previous versions of
this course are available online. Some experience with HTML is a
prerequisite for admission to the course.

This course will provide a wide-ranging and practical exploration of
electronic texts and related technologies. It is aimed primarily
(although not exclusively) at librarians and scholars keen to develop,
use, publish, and control electronic texts for library, research, or
teaching purposes. Drawing on the experience and resources available at
the University of Virginia's Electronic Text Center, the course will
cover the following areas: how to create archival-quality etexts,
including digital image facsimiles; the necessity of Standard
Generalized Markup Language (SGML) for etext development and use; the
implications of XML; text analysis software; and the management and use
of Web-based SGML text databases. As a focus for our study of etexts,
the class will create an electronic version of an archival document,
mark its structure with SGML ("TEI") tagging, create digital images of
sample pages and illustrations, produce a hypertext version, and make
the results available on the Internet.

L-80. Implementing Encoded Archival Description
Daniel Pitti :: 6-10 June 2005, University of Virginia

Encoded Archival Description (EAD) provides standardized
machine-readable descriptive access to primary resource materials. This
course is aimed at archivists, librarians, and museum personnel who
would like an introduction to EAD that includes an extensive supervised
hands-on component. Students will learn XML encoding techniques in part
using examples selected from among their own institutions' finding
aids. Other topics covered include: the context out of which EAD
emerged; introduction to the use of XML authoring tools; the conversion
of existing finding aids; publishing finding aids; funding sources for
EAD projects; and integration of EAD into existing archival processing.

This course will introduce the application of Encoded Archival
Description (EAD), Version 2002, to the encoding of archive and
manuscript library finding aids. Though aimed primarily at archivists
who process and describe collections in finding aids, it will also be
useful to repository administrators contemplating the implementation of
EAD, and to technologists working in repositories. Topics include: the
history of EAD and its theoretical and technological foundations; an
introduction to Extensible Markup Language (XML), including authoring
and network publishing tools; the structure and semantics of EAD; use
of software tools to create and publish finding aids; conversion
techniques and methodologies, and templates for the creation of new
finding aids; and the integration and management of EAD in an archive
or library.

L-85. Publishing EAD Finding Aids
Daniel Pitti :: 25-29 July 2005, University of Virginia

This course will introduce students to standards and software used for
publishing Extensible Markup Language (XML) encoded documents, with a
focus on EAD encoded finding aids. It is aimed at systems support
personnel in archives, libraries, and museums, or self-supporting
archivists, librarians, and museum staff who would like an introduction
to EAD publishing technology and methods. The course will focus on
writing stylesheets using Extensible Stylesheet Language-Transformation
(XSLT), but will also cover Web server technology, available software
for indexing and searching XML encoded information, and use of
Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) Formatting Objects to produce
printed finding aids. Topics include: in-depth introduction to the
Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL); authoring of stylesheets using
the XSLT language, focusing on XML to XML, and XML to HTML
transformations; use of multiple stylesheets and frames; survery and
functional evaluation of available indexing and searching software; use
of XSL Transformation and Formatting Objects to produce PostScript,
PDF, RTF, and other printable encodings; survey and functional
evaluation of XSL and XSLT software. The course will conclude with a
discussion of management and administrative issues presented by Web
