Free Open-Source Tool to Publish Blog Content

After one week of intense collaboration, participants in the One Week | One Tool workshop, organized by the Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University, announced the launch of Anthologize, a free, open source tool to publish weblog content in a variety of book formats.

Anthologize is a free, open-source, plugin that transforms WordPress 3.0 into a platform for publishing electronic texts. Grab posts from your WordPress blog, import feeds from external sites, or create new content directly within Anthologize. Then outline, order, and edit your work, crafting it into a single volume for export in several formats, including-in this release-PDF, ePUB, and TEI, an open XML format for storage and exchange. Microsoft Word DocX output support will be included in future versions, as well as ODT for OpenOffice users.

Anthologize harvests and organizes that digitally created content and enables new types of collaborative and process oriented authored publications. Anthologize is flexible, making it attractive to many users. Educators can generate collections of student work; curators can publish new types of exhibition catalogs with behind-the-scenes perspectives; genealogists can publish family histories; and bloggers can generate selections of their best work for print or distribution via Kindle, Nook, or iPad.

Anthologize is a product of One Week | One Tool, a project of NHNM at George Mason University. Funding is provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The project's team of 12 included professors, graduate students, recent undergraduates, museum professionals, librarians, and digital humanities staff.
