TAPAS: Building an XML-Aware Repository

The development of a data repository for the TEI Archiving, Publishing, and Access Service (TAPAS), which will help scholars, educators, and librarians preserve and publish TEI projects.

This project builds upon previous work to build a data storage back end for TAPAS that includes both a Fedora repository (using the Hydra framework) and an XML database, closely integrated with the TAPAS user interface front end so that long-term repository storage, XML publication options, and enhanced searching are a seamless part of the TAPAS interface. Building this system in Hydra helps ensure that these components can be reused by other Fedora/Hydra systems, and enables TAPAS to take advantage of ongoing development by the Hydra community. In the second half of the grant we will also support a series of "code-along" events to assist TAPAS contributors in enhancing their data to make better use of the new visualization tools, and to help faculty to incorporate these collaborative coding activities into their classroom curricula.
