ARTFL's online Encyclopédie - 10th anniversary

From ARTFL's director, Robert Morrissey, comes news about the new and improved content, interface, and functionalities of the ARTFL Encyclopédie Project:

"On this, the 10th anniversary of the ARTFL Encyclopédie Project, I am very pleased to present a new version of the digital Encyclopédie and to announce its release to the general public. While we have steadily made improvements over the years, this new version marks an important stage in the unfolding development of the electronic edition of Diderot and d'Alembert's monumental work. The author attributions have been verified and corrected; new searching functions have been introduced; new research and archival materials have been made available. This version includes not only the four volume Supplement to the Encyclopédie, but also the proofs of censored articles and legal documents bound together in the so-called "18th volume." For the first time, our user community will be able to participate in the correction and improvement of the edition by using our "report error" link to inform us of errors they encounter. All these factors have contributed to our decision to make most elements of this site available not just to the scholarly community of ARTFL subscribers, but to the public at large."
