Please forgive any duplicate postings.


The Humanities Text Initiative at the University of Michigan is providing
a workshop on SGML Encoding and System Implementation from Tuesday, May 27
through Saturday, May 31, 1997.  The HTI has created hundreds of texts in
SGML, using the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) DTDs, and has made these
and other commerical SGML collections available via the World Wide Web, 
serving both the University of Michigan community and Internet users in

The first three days of the workshop will cover SGML encoding (theory and
use of Author/Editor), scanning/OCR, reading and using DTDs, and several
related topics.  The final two days will split into two tracks: one
covering how our system works (the relationship between web forms,
middleware, the OpenText search engine, and the SGML text) and how it can
be locally modified, the other addressing public service issues.  The fee
for the week-long workshop is $500, $425 if registered before April 15th. 

More information about course content is available at
Some of the data is a bit sketchy at this point, but will be updated
and expanded shortly.


You will be required to make you own housing arrangements, but we have
collected some information to make this easier for you.

University Housing --

Mary Markley Residence Hall on Central Campus is relatively inexpensive
and conveniently located; however, it does not have air-conditioning or
private baths. Daily housekeeping is provided. The hall itself has a
reception desk, laundry machines, game rooms, TV rooms, snack bars,
vending machines, and a variety of lounges. Classrooms, libraries, and
University recreational facilities are within walking distance, and there
is a shuttle bus stop nearby.  Participants are responsible for finding
their own roommate if they want to share a double room. This is a typical
undergraduate-oriented residence hall facility.  Rates are $33 for a
single room, $44 for a double.  Availability on the dates you want is not
assured.  Contact Conferences and Seminars, (313) 764-5297 -- fax (313)
764-1557 -- and mention that you will be part of the Digital Toolkit. 

Hotels --

There are a number of hotels in Ann Arbor, two within walking distance of
the University, others farther away.  Contact the HTI (
for a list of Ann Arbor hotels.  Please keep in mind that accomodations
might be limited.

Meals --

The School of Information will be providing a continental breakfast each
morning.  In general, meals will be on your own.  Ann Arbor has any number
of restaurants, many very reasonably priced, in the Central Campus area.


Registration forms and general information about the Digital Toolkit as a
whole are available at
