          Subject: Report from meeting:  TEI and XML in Digital Libraries

On June 30th and July 1st, 1998, the Digital Library Federation sponsored a meeting on the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) and Extensible Markup Language (XML), held at the Library of Congress, Washington, DC. The meeting focused, for the first time, on library applications of the TEI Guidelines, specifically in the digital library setting. Invited guests included Michael Sperberg-McQueen (co-editor TEI Guidelines and co-editor XML specification; University of Illinois, Chicago) and Lou Burnard (co-editor TEI Guidelines; Oxford University). Final reports and recommendations from the three workgroups are now available online at:

The organizers of the meeting, LeeEllen Friedland (Library of Congress) and John Price-Wilkin (University of Michigan), wish to thank the Digital Library Federation for its generous support.
