Deliverables

1. A critical, on-going assessment of the practice of documenting the history of science and technology online, which will involve five leading practitioners from the worlds of the history of science and technology and digital history.
2. The Portal, an online center for those interested in the history of science and technology, which will offer (among other things) 300 detailed annotations of history of science and technology websites and ten major online dialogues with leading participants in the making of that history.
3. An active collecting effort of our own in our Memory Bank, which will produce at least 500 contributions.
4. A comprehensive guide to collecting history online.
5. Aggressive outreach to hundreds of other possible practitioners through personal contact, workshops, consultancies, which will result in fifty new practitioners who pursue the collecting and disseminating of the history of science and technology online.
