|Abstract:||The Austrian Academy Corpus (AAC) is a newly founded institution based at the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna. It was designed to set up a text corpus and to conduct research in the field of electronic text corpora. The electronic text collections established at the AAC so far and its future projects will mainly focus on electronic representations not only of literary texts, literary magazines, journals and newspapers but also on a carefully considered selection of texts from many cultural and social domains. The aim of the proposed paper is to investigate the potential of digital resources for textual studies in various fields of the humanities. The paper will consider the advance of new systems of digital representation and its implications for the study of language, literature and cultural history. The paper will show the range of interests pursued in the AAC research group. It will be concerned with the general organisational structures of the AAC, the specific selection criteria for the great variety of texts which will form the AAC, and finally, examine practical issues in digitising the magazine "Die Weltbühne", giving special attention to the applicability of XML Schemas in literary computing.|
