Wrapping it Up: TeiDisplay and Collaborative Mentoring with UT/UVa

I’m very excited to announce that my colleague Zane and I have completed our work on the TeiDisplay plugin for Omeka! It’s been a little while since I last posted, so if you’d like some background, check out our previous posts on this collaboration between the Scholars’ Lab and the University of Texas School of….

Examining TEI Displays Across the Web

As part of my project with Zane to update the TEIDisplay plugin for Omeka, I have been examining ways that different digital collections present TEI-encoded texts. We hope that by looking at the ways that other display tools function, we’ll be able to gain more insight into what works well and what doesn’t. One of….

How do you display TEI documents online?

As you can see from Zane’s post a few days ago, we’ve been hard at work on our update to TEIDisplay here at UT-Austin. While he’s been working to jive the plugin with the newest version of Omeka, I’ve been thinking more about how this tool will be used. While I’ve studied TEI and used it in….

Commentary on Migrating an Omeka Site

This week, for the TEIDisplay project, I migrated an existing Omeka installation to another server for Carin and me to use as our development sandbox. (We could have also locally installed an Omeka collection on our computers, but I wanted to make sure we were always wading through the same river.) I found some good….

An Update to TEIDisplay for Omeka

This spring, my colleague Zane Schwarzlose and I are working on an update to the TEIDisplay plugin for Omeka, developed by Ethan Gruber at the Scholars’ Lab. While it’s a great tool, it was developed as part of previous versions of Omeka. Even then, it was at times difficult to use, and some TEI elements….

Collaborative mentoring at UT & UVa: co-developing an updated TEIDisplay for Omeka

In partial answer to Bethany‘s charge in her recent ProfHacker piece “it starts on day one,” I’m very excited to introduce a cross-institutional effort  between the Scholars’ Lab and the School of Information at UT-Austin to mentor two UT graduate students in the iSchool as they work to develop a DH tool for the DH community. The…. Continue reading “Collaborative mentoring at UT & UVa: co-developing an updated TEIDisplay for Omeka”.

Building Omeka Exhibits with Fedora Repository Content

Our NEH-funded Neatline project has inspired the Scholars’ Lab to develop or enhance several new Omeka plugins recently. (See our full list.) One of these is FedoraConnector, which is designed to enable administrators to attach Fedora datastreams (a digital object — whether image, XML like TEI or EAD, or video) to Omeka items. This is….
