1 METS and TEI Richard Gartner Oxford University

2 Introduction (verbal) METS provides framework within which any data or metadata can be referenced or embedded This presentation shows how easily METS and TEI can be used in tandem The context is an image database with full OCRd text encoded in TEI

3 Cobbetts Parliamentary History

4 Incorporating TEI into METS

5 Incorporating TEI into METS

6 Incorporating TEI into METS

7 OCR -> TEI TEI in Libraries level 1 – simplest level of encoding designed for OCR texts –One element enclosing complete text –One element within this –Page breaks marked with

8 OCR -> TEI (verbal) OCRd text put into skeletal TEI file with minimal header Page-breaks in file replaced with A simple stylesheet assigns a sequential ID to each Another stylesheet adds elements to METS structural map pointing to elements

14 Why use METS and TEI together? Images Overlapping hierarchies

15 Verbal Images –AS far as P4, TEIs image facilities clumsy Have to use entity references only – no URLs URIs etc No way to distinguish between inline images (designed for these) and whole-page images No scope for administrative metadata Overlapping hierarchies –CONCUR was SGML mechanism for this – clumsy to use and gone in XML – various other approaches all distinguised by notational complexity

16 Images Page 1

17 Overlapping hierarchies Some approaches used with TEI –CONCUR (SGML) –MECS (Wittgenstein archive) –Stand-off markup: XLink mechanisms to impose markup (varying hierarchies) –TexMECS –Witt: PROLOG

18 Images in METS List all variants of image files in Each can have extensive administrative or descriptive metadata attached Reference them by URLs, URIs etc or embed them in the METS file FILEID element in indicates exact correspondence of image to part of the item
