Structured, Open, & Collaborative Publishing? The Case of arthistorians.info [Munch & Mull Digital Scholarship Discussion Group]

The Dictionary of Art Historians (arthistorians.info), the brainchild of Lee Sorensen, began in 1986 as a notecard project that indexed Eugene Kleinbauer’s Research Guide to the History of Western Art. Since then, the project has grown into a hybrid database and publishing platform, a curation of 2000+ contributed biographies and bibliographies of art history scholars. In 2017, the Dictionary became affiliated with the Wired! Lab and underwent major redevelopment, which is being launched at http://arthistorians.info. It is now housed in a Drupal database that will provide not only a standardized data structure but a range of new options for accepting and sharing contributions. 
Join our discussion with Lee Sorensen (project lead and Librarian for Art & Dance at Duke) and Hannah Jacobs (Wired! Lab Digital Humanities Specialist) as they reflect on the project’s history, its reincarnation, and exciting plans for future development and research.
