A collaboration between the Open Knowledge Foundation and Goldsmiths University funded by JISChttp://textusproject.org
What is TEXTUS? TEXTUS is the evolution of many years of work at the Open Knowledge Foundation dedicated to building open-source platforms for accessing and collaborating around public domain texts in the humanities. It builds on projects such as http://openshakespeare.org.http://textusproject.org
Why TEXTUS? • There are thousands of scattered electronic public domain texts online in places like Wikisource, Internet Archive and Project Gutenberg – they need to be brought together • Existing platforms for accessing these texts do not store high quality metadata that is useful for scholarly research • Most of the existing online public domain portals do not support user interaction and collaborationhttp://textusproject.org
OpenPhilosophy.org will behttp://textusproject.org
On OpenPhilosophy.org you will be able to…http://textusproject.org
Search… • For an author • For a text • For a specific edition • For a given term across a collection of texts • For a given term across a set of annotations • For particular kinds of annotationhttp://textusproject.org
TEXTUS will enable you to… • Reliably cite electronic editions of texts using URLs – allowing you choose the format of your reference • Upload texts • Export your own annotated editions of texts • Create your own bibliographies and reading lists with links to freely available copies of those workshttp://textusproject.org
TEXTUS will allow you to do all these things and deliver them through a beautiful and simple interface.http://textusproject.org
