TEI and Plain Text Files for Reuse

From Michelle Dalmau, Interim Head of Digital Collections Services at Wells Library, Indiana University:

In honor of Open Access Week, and motivated by a recent mock keynote debate, A Matter of Scale,” presented by Matt Jockers and Julia Flanders as part of the Boston Area Days of Digital Humanities Conference, I present for exploration, re-use and re-mixing outside of their native interfaces TEI (P4 & P5) and plain text files of the following e-text collections published by the Indiana University (IU) Libraries:

These files are made available for use under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 (CC BY-NC 3.0) license and can be downloaded or forked from githib, https://github.com/iulibdcs/tei_text, which includes a detailed readme file that you should, um, read, about this initiative.

I encourage you to share your uses (intended, past, and future) of this data on our repository’s wiki space: <https://github.com/iulibdcs/tei_text/wiki> so we can track your magic.

Have fun!
