Initially launched in 1987, the TEI is an international and interdisciplinary standard that helps libraries, museums, publishers, and individual scholars represent all kinds of literary and linguistic texts for online research and teaching, using an encoding scheme that is maximally expressive and minimally obsolescent.

In December of 2000, a new consortium was established to sustain and develop the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI). Initially launched in 1987, the TEI is an international and interdisciplinary standard that helps libraries, museums, publishers, and individual scholars represent all kinds of literary and linguistic texts for online research and teaching, using an encoding scheme that is maximally expressive and minimally obsolescent.

The TEI began as a research effort cooperatively organized by three scholarly societies (the Association for Computers and the Humanities, the Association for Computational Linguistics, and the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing), and funded solely by substantial research grants from the US National Endowment for the Humanities, the European Union, the Canadian Social Science Research Council, the Mellon Foundation, and others.

In December 2000, after a year's negotiation, a new non-profit corporation called the TEI Consortium was set up to maintain and develop the TEI standard. The Consortium has executive offices in Bergen, Norway, and hosts at the University of Bergen, Brown University, Oxford University, and the University of Virginia, with Lou Burnard (of Oxford) as European editor, and Syd Bauman (of Brown) as North American Editor. The Consortium is managed by a Board of Directors, and its technical work is overseen by an elected Council.
