  1. (Current TAPAS User)  
Register for membership with the TEI Consortium using the same email address* as your current TAPAS account
  1. (New TAPAS User)
  1. Register for membership with the TEI Consortium
  2. Using the same email address* on file with your TEI-C membership, register for a TAPAS account (your account will automatically be upgraded). See these this section for a slideshow and steps: (link to section above)
Paid accounts are automatically enabled via a setup where the registered TAPAS user’s account email is checked against the TEI-C’s membership database (Wild-Apricot). If the user’s email is registered and up to date with the TEI-C, they are automatically granted access to project and collection features in their TAPAS user dashboard.

The TAPAS Commons is a community level, public project in TAPAS. All registered users of TAPAS are able to upload and contribute TEI content to this shared project as part of their free TAPAS account.
