Using the basic TEI structural elements

18. What kinds of metadata?

For the Punch Project and for any other comparable project, we will need a place for such information as
  • identification of the resource itself ("what is this thing?")
  • statements of responsibility ("who did what when?")
  • indication of source ("what was this derived from?")
  • publication statement ("how is this item distributed and by whom?")
  • declaration of encoding practice ("what do the codes we added mean?")

The TEI Header supports all these, and more.
