<pb>) for future linking to digital facsimiles.
- 2018-02-06: released complete metadata as TEI and MODS XML
some technical details
This repository contains a single TEI XML file containing one
<biblStruct> for each issue. This file is produced through automatic iteration making use of this code and manual validation against the digital facsimiles.
The TEI is then automatically converted to MODS XML for integration into reference management software etc (such as Zotero).
Metadata on the issue level has been integrated into the OpenArabicPE Zotero group.
