Andreas Aschenbrenner & Jens Mittelbach: TextGrid: Towards a national e-infrastructure for the arts and humanities in Germany

Project site

TEI community. Funded to €2 million. Virtual Research Environment: data grid as a virtual archive for data curation; service grid for collab work, including existing TEI tools; and a collaborative platoform for scientific text data processing.

TextGridLab is the grid client. Globus-based infrastructure. The physicists throw away their Grid data because individual pieces of data are of relatively low vaue; TextGrid want to archive data as they go.

Usage by: end users (accessing scholarly texts); editors (philologists); tool developers; institutional content providers.
