    • 1. Desiderata for Digital Editions Peter Robinson University of Saskatchewan
    • 2. 1. The text of both the document and of the work should be encoded; 2. All editorial acts should be attributed; 3. All materials should, by default, be available by a Creative Commons share-alike license; 4. All materials should be available independent of any one interface; 5. All materials should be held in a sustainable long-term storage system, such as an institutional repository
    • 3. 1. The text of both the document and of the work should be encoded “Traditional” TEI -- “New” TEI (Ch. 11 of P5) --
    • 4. Overlapping hierarchies? Just deal with it! Textual Communities:
    • 5. www.textualcommunities.usask.ca Anyone for refsDecl? We are… This tells the processor: the document tree is made of pages containing columns containing lines Do the same for the entity tree (each <div> is a part of the Tales, containing <l> elements for each line) Map this to an ontology, put all these chunks into a database, and you are done
    • 6. View by document
    • 7. View by entity within document
    • 8. View by entity and entity part
    • 9. All editorial acts should be attributed
    • 10. If you have the‘non-commercial’ restriction you might as well lock it up and throw away the key Kings College: 47 projects with digital output: •23: “© 2011 Kings College London” or similar •21: Specify restrictions (usually ‘non-commercial’) •3: available without restriction (all from one group of projects) http://www.kuro5hin.org/story/2005/9/11/16331/0655 (“ Creative Commons -NC Licenses Considered Harmful”)
    • 11. All materials should be available independent of any one interface Your interface is everyone else’s enemy
    • 12. Let everybody take and reuse your data Solution: CCSA+Smart Data+API=HCE=42
    • 13. Why digital humanists should get out of textual scholarship Peter Robinson University of Saskatchewan
    • 14. Social, Digital, Scholarly Editing Saskatoon, 11-13 July 2013
    • 15. What I said Collaboration between textual scholars and digital humanists is a mistake Digital humanists should get out of textual scholarship; and if they don’t, textual scholars should throw them out
    • 16. What I did not say Textual scholars should not use digital methods NO. The medium has always been central to textual scholarship. We have to know everything there is to know about digital texts – and we have to make digital texts.
    • 17. The mistakes we have made together The story of <add> and <del> BUT Inferno iii, 9: Riccardiana 1005 NOT
    • 18. The mistakes we have made together • Digital scholarly editions are more than TEI encoding • Alan Galey is wrong. You don’t need to know PHP, grep, Apache, the history of browsers, XSLT … • Angle brackets are NOT good for you
    • 19. How we may work NOT: One Project/One Scholar/One Digital Humanist INSTEAD: Lots of projects with lots of scholars creating lots of data, open to all Lots of other people doing lots of things with the data – making interfaces, exploring it different ways Many Projects/Many Scholars/Many Digital Humanists
