The goal of this project is the design and development of highly accurate and reliable electronic editions of works published by British women poets between 1789 and 1832. The texts will be tagged using Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) and encoded using the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines, with the TEI Lite DTD.
Texts are being selected in consultation with an Editorial Advisory Board consisting of scholars in the United States and Canada. Our aim is to make complete texts available that are not readily accessible from other sources.
In the initial stages of the project, texts will be drawn from the UC–Davis Shields Library's Kohler Collection of British Poetry, housed in the Department of Special Collections.
For the TEI local usage manual used by the project, see http://digital.lib.ucdavis.edu/projects/bwrp/BWRPveg.htm .
A Librarians Association of the University of California Research grant has allowed us to purchase two copies of Author/Editor software and to hire student taggers. Other staffing is provided by volunteer interns. Generous technical consultation with the University Office of Instructional Technology and the Shields library is allowing us to proceed with the tagging of texts.
