XQuery Summer Institute: Advancing XML-Based Scholarship from Representation to Discovery

This two-week summer institute at Vanderbilt would train 12 participants in the techniques and methodologies of XQuery language, which allows for searching and manipulating texts encoded in XML.

The XQuery Summer Institute at Vanderbilt University will be aimed at archivists, librarians, professors, and students who have experience marking up texts in XML, but do not yet know how to work computationally with those documents. Our institute aspires to recruit twelve members of the digital humanities community to a two week institute in June 2014. The faculty of the institute will teach participants to work productively with their XML-encoded texts using XQuery, a programming language designed specifically for XML. With XQuery, scholars can learn a single language to ingest their texts into an XML database, ask questions of them, connect them with other sources of information, and publish them on the web. Participants will go beyond using XML for representation to querying XML for discovery.
