Transcript of "Introduction to TEXTUS"

  1. 1. A collaboration between the Open Knowledge Foundation and Goldsmiths University funded by JISChttp://textusproject.org
  2. 2. 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
  3. 3. 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
