I briefly posted to the list about Omeka a while back [1].

Just spotted this interesting post on Omeka + TEI:


For anyone who hasn't seen the project before, here's a short video on Omeka:


Can't quite work out whether there might be any synergies with TEXTUS?

Dear TEI and Omeka enthusiasts,

Are you hankering for an easy way to incorporate TEI documents into your
Omeka installation? I am advising two of my graduate students, Carin
Yavorcik and Zane Schwarzlose, at the iSchool at the University of Texas
at Austin who are working with UVA's Scholars' Lab (under the direction
of Bethany Nowviskie and Wayne Graham) to update the Omeka plug-in
TEIDisplay (see more at
-uva-co-developing-an-updated-teidisplay-for-omeka/). Carin and Zane are
working to make the tool useful such that users can upload TEI documents
that will display within the Omeka interface. As well they are creating
simplified templates and documentation for teaching or at cultural
heritage institutions with few resources for training new users.

I hope those who are interested in such a tool (and documentation) might
visit their post at DHanswers to let them know what might be useful:

Thank you in advance for your time--
