A New Future for the Past: The Encyclopedia of Cleveland History

With the publication of its first hardcopy edition in 1987, The Encyclopedia of Cleveland History opened a new era in the presentation of urban history. When it moved to the World Wide Web in 1998, it pioneered the concept of an on-line, vetted, urban history resource. Today the on-line ECH stands as one of the university’s most visible digital humanities projects. However, in the midst of the growing number of on-line wikis, blogs, and social networks, it is changing again to remain competitive as a popular, attractive, scholarly historical source. Editor John J. Grabowski will discuss the past, present, and future of the ECH at this Baker-Nord digital humanities program. The ECH is also archived on Digital Case.
