tool: EATS

The Entity Authority Tool Set (EATS) is a web application for recording, editing, using and displaying authority information about entities. It is designed to allow multiple authorities to each maintain their own independent data, while operating on a common base so that information about the same entity is all in one place. EATS also comes with client tools for automatically looking up entities in a text by name and adding appropriate TEI markup.
