University of Michigan Humanities Text Initiative (HTI)


"The University of Michigan Humanities Text Initiative (HTI) was designed to provide an umbrella effort for the creation and maintenance of online texts in SGML, and to serve as a mechanism for furthering the University's capabilities in dealing with all areas of online text. In its text creation efforts, most notably in American verse and Middle English prose, the HTI uses the TEI guidelines. The HTI also provides online access to electronic texts in SGML from a variety of publishers."

"The HTI is jointly funded by the University Library, the School of Information, and the University of Michigan Press. Funding for personnel, hardware, and software has also been received from the University's Office of the Vice President for Research, the Presidential Initiative Fund, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation."
