I just finished an intensive training workshop in TEI for the Digital Mitford Project headed by Elisa Beshero-Bondar. She blogs about her work at Confessions of a Digital Romanticist and at the Digital Mitford Project Blog. Elisa is an inspiring, energetic, motivated, tireless, and highly ethical leader who is trying to create a massive archive of Mary Russell Mitford’s works that aspire to the highest standards for digital archiving. I’m proud to be contributing to this project. We all feel very grateful to be working with her. I should also add that she’s a great teacher — very patient and does a good job explaining complex, highly detail oriented processes.
