Creating the "Encyclopedia of Egyptology"

Creating the first phase of the online "Encyclopedia of Egyptology" with 500 entries on the history and culture of Egypt from 5500 BCE to 641 CE.

UCLA, in collaboration with an international team of experts, requests support for the first implementation phase of the UCLA Encyclopedia of Egyptology (UEE), a digital resource that will broaden and enhance the access of scholars, students and the lay public to high quality scholarly information on the ancient Egyptian civilization. The UEE will make readily available a wide array of texts, images, 3D models, maps and other data. In addition, the UEE will provide a model for new methods of presentation, access and generation of information for the humanities. This NEH supported two-year phase will allow launching the UEE through the creation and publication of the first 500 core content entries.
