The American Numismatic Society is looking for a TEI specialist wanted for
a short-term, part-time (c. 250-hour) project at $20.00/hour. 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
- 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 <http://numismatics.org/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
