Digital Scholarship: Rotunda’s Historic Collection of Scholarly Books
Rotunda titles include a unique collection of historic documents including the Papers of George Washington; the Papers of James Madison; Buildings of the United States, and many other fascinating topics. Rotunda wanted to create digital, full-text XML for each title across its collection and enable more granular search and navigation across online content. To reach this goal, a partner was needed to digitize and encode books in accordance with the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) XML standard.
Apex’s digitization technology and processes provided Rotunda with a scalable solution to scan, key, and encode each character into structured, full-text book XML with detailed metadata.
