Buildings of the United States Online

A pilot project to develop the infrastructure for Buildings of the United States, an online database on architectural history.

BUS, an award-winning publication series sponsored by SAH, has a mission to record & interpret all American architecture on a state-by-state basis. SAH has published 12 authoritative, peer-reviewed print volumes. SAH now plans to partner with University of Virginia Press to publish BUS ONLINE, the first peer-reviewed, comprehensive, robust online database of American architecture. BUS ONLINE will be the foundation for two web sites: (1) BUS-H, an open access, free public web site that will present the histories of up to 150 buildings from each state in the US; and (2) BUS-SE, a subscription based web site containing the thousands of building entries in the BUS database that will be developed for both the general public and scholars alike. This is a planning grant request to enable SAH and UVaP to create the editorial, technical, legal, and financial framework to launch and sustain BUS ONLINE as an unprecedented nationally-focused database of the American built environment.
