TAPAS Beta-testing

The TEI Archiving, Publishing, and Access Service (TAPAS) is getting close to its public launch in spring 2014. In preparation we are seeking participants to help us with another round of beta testing. We are particularly interested in small to moderate-sized collections of TEI data. Since our last beta testing period in April 2013, we have refined and expanded our search and exploration interfaces, streamlined the data management workflows, and improved the reading interface. We’ve also done extensive performance testing and enhancement. Here’s how beta-testers will be involved in the next phase:
  1. In February, beta testers will help testing the new and refined features of the service, identifying any remaining areas that need work before launch. In particular at this stage we are looking for any remaining bugs, missing documentation, or areas where the workflow is confusing.
  2. A small group of faculty will be testing the service through classroom use, so that we can learn more about how the system operates under load and see how the interface works for group projects.
  3. As part of the spring launch, a set of early adopters will set up working TAPAS projects and collections that demonstrate the features of the service.
If you’d like to participate in any of these activities, please register here: http://bit.ly/ufjOFO. If you have registered in the past, you don’t need to register again. We will contact all registered testers when the beta testing period is about to begin with details about how to participate.
