EEBO-TCP Update at ALA Annual

It has been several years since the Text Creation Partnership has held an update at the American Library Association’s Annual Meeting, and we look forward to reviving the tradition this June. If you will be in Anaheim, we hope you will join us for an afternoon reception, as we celebrate reaching the milestone of 40,000 texts in EEBO-TCP, and look ahead to the future of the project.

The program will include:

  • updates on the status of the TCP projects
  • a look at the role TCP continues to play in the changing landscape of digital text archives and the growing field of digital humanities
  • two brief presentations from TCP users: Harriett Green, English and Digital Humanities Librarian at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign; and Eric Nebeker, Lecturer in the Department of English, University of California, Santa Barbara

We invite you to report on how faculty, students, librarians and others at your university are using the TCP texts, and to bring your ideas and questions to share. Current TCP partners and the TCP-curious are both very welcome to attend.

The pertinent details are:

Date: Saturday, June 23, 2012

Time: 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Location: Red Lion Hotel, Anaheim (1850 S Harbor Blvd, Anaheim, CA 92802)

Room: Leon II

If you plan to attend, giving us a heads up by email or Twitter will help us plan for refreshments (but isn’t required–please stop by in any case!). We hope to see you on the west coast in a few weeks!
