A Note from the Head

This is an exciting time at the U-M Library because of the launch of Research Data Services and Deep Blue Data. Here at Asia Library, we are pleased to announce that we now have an exhibit case in the Reference Room. Commemorating the fact that this fall the University of Michigan Press is publishing Red Roofs and Other Stories, a collection of English translations (by Anthony H. Chambers and Paul McCarthy) of stories by the Japanese novelist Tanizaki Jun'ichirō (1886-1965), our first exhibit centers on the breadth of Tanizaki’s works in the Asia Library. We are now making plans for future exhibits; please contact us if you have ideas and/or would like to partner with us on the production of an exhibit.

Chinese Studies Librarian Liangyu Fu has received a grant from the Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies to organize a series of lectures and events with the theme of “Deep Dive into Digital and Data Methods for Chinese Studies." Details will be announced on the Center’s web site.

Please stop by to ask for library assistance, see our exhibit, or just to say hello!

Text Creation Partnership (TCP)

The Text Creation Partnership is a non-profit initiative that produces standardized, digitally encoded editions of early print books selected from the Early English Books Online (EEBO), Eighteenth-Century Collections Online (ECCO) and Evans Early American Imprints databases. The TCP has teams at the University of Michigan and University of Oxford Libraries; the project is managed at UM. 

This labor-intensive process involves:

  • Manual keyboard entry (from digital images of the books’ original pages)
  • The addition of structured, semantic markup (based on the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines)
  • Editorial review

Our work makes it possible to search the full text of books in EEBO, ECCO, or Evans. The files we produce also function as base texts for digital scholarly editions and, together, comprise a significant set of historical linguistic data ripe for analysis. 

The work of the Text Creation Partnership is funded by a large network of library partners. Each partner institution's one-time contribution:

  • Makes them a co-owner of the texts, with perpetual rights to use them as if created locally
  • Guarantees their immediate access to existing texts, and updates as they are released
  •  Funds the production of more texts, improving the corpus for all partner institutions

UM Library staff working on the TCP include: 

  • Ali Jakobson, EEBO, Evans, and ECCO-TCP text reviewer
  • John Latta, EEBO-TCP text reviewer and text selector
  • Mona Logarbo, EEBO-TCP text reviewer
  • Paul Schaffner, production manager
  • Rebecca Welzenbach, TCP project outreach librarian
  • The UM TCP team also benefits greatly from the contributions of temporary and student text reiewers


More about the Text Creation Partnership, and how to become a partner in EEBO-TCP Phase II, is available on our project's main website
