The ANS is looking for a TEI specialist wanted for a short-term, part-time (c. 250-hour) project at $20.00/hour. TEI proficiency preferred. Numismatics knowledge helpful but not required. The successful candidate will add to the research value of TEI XML-encoded ebooks by enhancing linking to American Numismatic Society projects and external resources, which will also facilitate broader dissemination though other cultural heritage aggregation projects, such as Social Networks and Archival Context (SNAC) and Pelagios. The TEI specialist will verify existing tags in the current files for ca. 90 books (some are quite short), and will supplement tagging with:
- specific references to coins in the ANS collection
- all of the hoards published on coinhoards.org
- specific coin types published in Coinage of the Roman Republic Online (CRRO) and Pella
- any other place name or personal name that is featured or most relevant to the subject matter of a particular section in a book
The TEI specialist will also ensure that the illustrations referenced by the TEI XML files are linked to the correct images on the project server.
These tasks may be done outside of the ANS’s New York office. The project is perfect for graduate students in the Digital Humanities, and provides the opportunity to work with a world leader in linked open data, open source, and open access at the ANS with its Director of Data Science, Ethan Gruber.
Send CV/resume to Ethan Gruber by September 1. Project deadline is December 1.
