In this half-day hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to use LEAF-Writer - an open-source, open-access Extensible Markup Language (XML) editor that runs in a web browser and offers scholars and their students a rich textual editing experience without the need to download, install, and configure proprietary software, pay ongoing subscription fees, or learn complex coding languages. This user-friendly editing environment incorporates Text Encoding Initiatives (TEI) and Resource Description Framework (RDF) standards, meaning that texts edited in LEAF-Writer are interoperable with other texts produced by the scholarly editing community and with other materials produced for the Semantic Web.

Participants will learn how to make the most of LEAF-Writer’s extensive capabilities on their own laptops.They will learn how to choose among TEI customizations that best support their work in diplomatic and/or semantic markup, add inline scholarly notes and glosses, and create annotations - tagging named entities and associating them with recognized authorities like VIAF, Wikidata, and Getty - that do double duty as in-text identifiers and potential contributions to the Semantic Web.
