The Digital Library Unit provides training and advice on metadata standards for DH projects including semantic mark-up of textual content, transcription and translation for digital editions projects, the selection and use of ontologies and identifiers, and the production and licensing of content for programmatic analysis. The DLU has particular expertise in xml mark-up languages such as TEI.

Examples of recent and ongoing projects include:

  • Equatorie of the Planetis (full description, transcription and translation of the Chaucer autograph)
  • Darwin manuscripts (digital edition of manuscripts leading to publication of the Origin)
  • Board of Longitude (digital version of large archive with accessible description, transcription of key texts and links to a museum collection)
