About TAPAS

Mission

The goal of TAPAS is to provide TEI publishing and repository services at low cost to those who lack institutional resources: faculty, students, librarians, archivists, teachers, and anyone else with TEI data who wants to store, share, and publish it. TAPAS seeks to achieve these goals in a collaborative, open, and community-driven way using open-source tools. The TAPAS project is a collaborative effort involving many institutions and people who support TAPAS in many different ways: hosting the service, contributing to the project's development, providing beta-testing and test data, and serving in advisory roles.
