Development of the Encyclopedia Virginia, an online reference work of comprehensive, peer reviewed, and digitally born content that focuses on Virginia's people, history, government, economy, and culture.

Encyclopedia Virginia (EV), a multi-year online publication of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH), is a publicly accessible reference work of comprehensive, peer-reviewed, and digitally-born content that focuses on Virginia's people, history, government, economy, and culture. With this proposal, EV seeks funds to develop sections of entries that explore the facts, complexities, and interpretations of pre-colonial and colonial Virginia history and to use this content as a proving ground to demonstrate to similar projects the benefits of robust markup and open technology standards. This project is important not only because of the content we are building, but also because of how we are building it: with a deliberate eye towards longevity and adaptability.
