    Abstract:
    Best practices and Standards for Online Encyclopedias will facilitate long-term planning among geographically based digital encyclopedias and document best practices in content/technical standards for the development of shared innovations in digital encyclopedia projects across the U.S. The project focuses on a summit meeting on technology and content practice in digital encyclopedias, which will produce a guide of best practices for content and technical standards and a roadmap to technological innovation. Project goals are to gather data about the digital encyclopedia community and its needs; to collaboratively publish a white paper on standards and technology; to utilize AASLH's Internet Digital Encyclopedia Alliance (IDEA) committee to maintain and support those standards; and to promote humanities-based, online reference works as authoritative sources for public research.
    Notes:
    The development of best practices for the production of geographically-based online humanities encyclopedias.
