The TEI can now process credit card transactions, allowing on-line registration for our annual conference and members’ meeting, and making it easier for individuals to join the TEI as subscribers (most institutional members prefer receiving invoices, so we have not added institutional membership to this cart; please contact us if you would like to use a credit card to take out an institutional membership).

If you are interested in finding out more about our new AccessTEI digitization programme and portal, you can visit it directly at http://accesstei.apexcovantage.com/.

About the TEI
The Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) is a consortium which collectively develops and maintains a standard for the representation of texts in digital form. Its chief deliverable is a set of Guidelines which specify encoding methods for machine-readable texts, chiefly in the humanities, social sciences and linguistics. Since 1994, the TEI Guidelines have been widely used by libraries, museums, publishers, and individual scholars to present texts for online research, teaching, and preservation. In addition to the Guidelines themselves, the Consortium provides a variety of supporting resources, including resources for learning TEI, information on projects using the TEI, TEI-related publications, and software developed for or adapted to the TEI.
The TEI Consortium is a non-profit membership organization composed of academic institutions, research projects, and individual scholars from around the world. Members contribute financially to the Consortium and elect representatives to its Council and Board of Directors.
