DRAFT: TEI Text Encoding in Libraries: Guidelines for Best Encoding Practices is now available for comment until May 6, 2009.
Here's an excerpt from the comment survey:
The revised "TEI Text Encoding in Libraries: Guidelines for Best Encoding Practices," currently in draft form, contain updated versions of the widely adopted encoding 'levels'—from fully automated conversion to content analysis and scholarly encoding. They also contain a substantially revised section on the TEI Header, designed to support interoperability between text collections and the use of complementary metadata schemas such as MARC and METS. The new Guidelines also reflect an organizational shift. Originally authored by the DLF-sponsored TEI Task Force, the current revision work is a partnership between members of the Task Force and the TEI Libraries SIG. As a result of this partnership, responsibility for the Guidelines will migrate to the SIG, allowing closer work with the TEI Consortium as a whole and a stronger basis for advocating for the needs of libraries in future TEI releases.
