TEI Templates and Guides

The Guides and Templates collection is a pre-generated collection of sample TEI files that model common document genres (e.g., letters, drama, poetry as well as sample support files: placeography, personography, orgographies) as well as common encoding scenarios supported by the TAPAS Reading Interface.

TEI Workshops

TAPAS Workshops

TAPAS Workshops are run by the TAPAS team and focus on managing your TEI data and projects in TAPAS. These workshops are offered to members and non-members of TAPAS.We offer two workshop formats:
  • 1-day workshops that help participants get started in TAPAS
  • 2-day workshops that offer an introduction to the TEI followed by a hands-on lab in TAPAS
TAPAS workshops are held either at Northeastern University or by request at other institutions. Pricing and scheduling will vary. Please be sure to provide as much information as possible in your Workshop inquiry to help us assess what kinds of services you or your community will need in a workshop setting. 

Community Workshops

We support outside community TEI workshops by offering a prebuilt community workshop project space. Here, partnering instructors (see below) and their attendees can upload sample TEI, collaborate through a dedicated forum space, create custom collections, and test drive TAPAS features.
