  • The Alliance for Networking Visual Culture: “The Alliance for Networking Visual Culture seeks to enrich the intellectual potential of our fields to inform understandings of an expanding array of visual practices as they are reshaped within digital culture, while also creating scholarly contexts for the use of digital media in film, media and visual studies. By working with humanities centers, scholarly societies, and key library, archive, and university press partners, we are investigating and developing sustainable platforms for publishing interactive and rich media scholarship.” (

  • TEI Tools: “Tools for creating, editing, transforming, and publishing TEI documents and schemas are essential to using the TEI Guidelines. Since the TEI rules and recomendations are expressed in XML, TEI users can take advantage of the abundance of XML tools developed for general use. In addition, the TEI community develops and distributes TEI-specific tools.” (
  • Teach Yourself TEI: “This page lists some generic TEI introductory readings and manuals, and also a selection of tutorial guides prepared by members of the TEI community for their own needs. Any project using the TEI has to make its own decisions about which parts of the scheme to use, and how; consequently these manuals, guides, project notes etc. reflect a healthy variety of views, as well as varying degrees of complexity or sophistication. We’ve tried to characterize them in broad terms, but for the full scoop on each project, you’ll probably want to visit its associated description on the TEI Projects Page, where you may also find other useful leads for projects like yours.” (

At the heart of Critical Commons is an online platform for viewing, tagging, sharing, annotating curating and spreading media. Our goal is to build open, informed communities around media-based research, teaching, learning and creativity. And although we are huge fans of their work, please note that Critical Commons is not affiliated in any way with Creative Commons.” (
  • Internet Archive: “The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded to build an Internet library.
