The TAPAS project has received generous funding support from the following organizations:
The TEI-Consortium has been vital to the success of TAPAS by helping to provide a low cost TEI publishing option for the TEI community by offering current TEI-C members extended project and collection features through their myTAPAS accounts.
TAPAS has received three major grants from the NEH, which have funded the early stage implementation of TAPAS, the expansion of the functionality of TAPAS with a Hydra-Fedora repository and XML database, and to start exploring XML-aware visualization options as part of the TAPAS reading interface. The most recent funding from the NEH supports the development of materials and tools that support classroom and workshop users of TAPAS, including new display stylesheets, sample files, handouts, and slide sets.
TAPAS has received two major grants from the IMLS. The first proposed the creation of a TEI preservation, publication, and transformation service. Between 2009 – 2010, this group worked together to design the early phase needs assessment and design of what would become the TAPAS project, including its services, data architecture, and front-end user interface. The second supported the early stage implementation of TAPAS. This first development phase involved major work on the user interface, work flows, and initial forms of validation and display of TEI data. During this period TAPAS also created a community of Early Adopters who contributed test data and pilot projects.
