JISC Funded Projects

The ODL is involved in three projects which are funded by the JISC. Further details can be found on their individual project pages.

Text Encoding Initiatives     

The ODL is involved in several projects to encode books and manuscripts in electronic full text. Chief among the projects are:

  • The Early English Books Online project - the ODL is a partner in this project to encode 25,000 early printed books in XML. The project web page can be found at http://www.odl.ox.ac.uk/eebo/news.html
  • The Carte Calendar Project - the ODL developed the guidelines and was responsible for delivering the encoded full-text for this conversion of a 19th-century handwritten calendar to electronic form. The finished project is available through the Bodleian Library as well as through the Access to Archives gateway.

Other upcoming projects include the ECCO (Eighteenth Century Collections Online) project. ODL staff are available to offer advice and expertise on text encoding projects initiated by members of Oxford University, and can be contacted by email at odl-enquiries@ouls.ox.ac.uk
