Becoming Arizona: A Cyberpedia Project

Planning for an online encyclopedia of Arizona history and culture.

The Arizona State University History Department?s Public History and Scholarly Publishing Programs request funds to plan Becoming Arizona, a collaborative and authoritative web-based information center and cyberpedia of Arizona?s history, culture, and environment to address its dynamic process of historical and cultural change. Becoming Arizona will provide: 1) a reference source or cyberpedia that is authoritative, accessible, and dynamic; 2) a collaborative digital environment bridging the gap between the academy and the general public and facilitating an ongoing dialogue about what Arizona has become and what it is becoming; and 3) a semantically indexed Web portal connecting users to valuable digitized content, pertaining to Arizona and the West and allowing them to discover new relationships and themes within that content.
