TAPAS is the TEI Archiving Publishing and Access Service for scholars and other creators of TEI data who need a place to publish their materials in different forms and ensure it remains accessible over time. TAPAS is also for anyone interested in reading and exploring TEI data, and communicating with those that share that interest. The goal of TAPAS is to provide TEI publishing and repository services at low cost to those who lack institutional resources: faculty, students, librarians, archivists, teachers, and anyone else with TEI data who wants to store, share, and publish it.
The Salman Rushdie Archive Project is a resource for Rushdie scholars and a platform for scholarship in Rushdie Studies. Salman Rushdie remains a culturally relevant author whose work and celebrity status consistently shape larger conversations about South Asian studies, geopolitics, and popular culture. While there are many blogs and websites devoted to opinions and information on Rushdie, there is no single web source for all the online data available on the author and his work.
This project is an experiment in crowd-sourced brainstorming and project development. Constructive feedback and input are encouraged! Thank you.

"Time, Routes, and Places of Nineteenth-Century Travelers" is dedicated to compiling, querying, visualizing, and interpreting the narratives by men and women who traveled to Spain from over ten countries of Europe and the Americas over the course of the “long” nineteenth century (1789-1914). We are mapping the itineraries of these travelers and developing a conceptual map of Spain as nineteenth-century travel destination, as visitors from different countries saw it.
The core of Digital Thoreau will be a TEI-encoded text of Walden enriched by scholarly annotations, links, images, and social tools that enable users to create conversations around the text.
The annotations from Walden: An Annotated Edition, edited by Thoreau biographer Walter Harding, together with digital assets from the the Thoreau Society’s Harding Collection (curated by the Thoreau Institute Library at The Walden Woods Project) provide a base layer of context on which future layers will be built.
We are building a social digital library where it is easy to discover, enjoy and learn about art and literature. We will use crowdsourcing and editorial curation to provide relevant information and search results to users. We will begin with public domain content from Gutenberg and other sources.
