Unlocking Digital Texts: Towards an interoperable text framework

The development of a proof of concept for an Interoperable Text Framework which will standardize the format of digital texts to make them easier to present, analyze, and reuse. The lead UK partner, the University of Oxford, is requesting £248,433 from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Unlocking Digital Texts (UDT) aims to lay the foundation for the creation of the Interoperable Text Framework (ITF). Just as the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) enables users to present, annotate and reuse digital images easily without having to worry about the underlying infrastructure, ITF will empower users to create a richer and more layered approach to the presentation, analysis and reuse of textual resources. Freed from costly technical concerns, users will be able to use the web to construct persistent online narratives that span any number of documents from around the world simply by referencing them appropriately.
