This live demonstration shows how the new DocTracker 2.0 can help historians meet this challenge. The demo begins with research and collection and moves through annotation, document storage and retrieval, XML tagging, and fast and accurate online publication. Also included is a look at the project management software included as part of the DocTracker package. Among the features covered: connect from DocTracker to the Internet for seamless research, fact-checking, and contact management activities; send an email direct from DocTracker and have it recorded in the log; visit a repository, photograph or scan a document with your smart phone and upload it directly to DocTracker; transcribe a document and proof it against the scanned image on the same screen, or, transcribe financial data into a spreadsheet-like interface, where DocTracker preserves the original text while converting dates and numbers to computable formats for online data searches; insert HTML or XML tags automatically with the click of a button; report on what’s been done and what remains to be done; and finally, export pages, bibliographies, glossaries, and more directly to well-formed and valid XML for immediate online publication.
