Overview of the Encyclopedia Content Management System (eCMS)

eCMS, Our Digital Encyclopedia Solution

Encyclopedia Content Management System (eCMS) is our solution for managing and developing an online encyclopedia. The system allows authorized users to create entries, upload images, create collections and photo galleries, and create complex linking relationships between all objects.

eCMS Features

Browser Independence

eCMS is set up so that administrators are not required to use any specific tools in order to add content to the system, other than a web browser. The system is meant to be platform-independent from the visitor’s point of view.

Accessibility Compliance

The eCMS system and components are meant to be compliant with the accessibility requirements on four levels:

  • W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0
  • Federal requirements of Section 508, 1194.22, and the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Any state guidelines
  • Any local or organization guidelines


eCMS has been built so that it can be installed on any server environment.

Compliance with AASLH IDEA Standards

Our team was involved with the publication of online encyclopedia standards developed by the American Association of State and Local History (AASLH) and the Internet Digital Encyclopedia Alliance (IDEA) Group. This ensures that digital encyclopedias developed on our platform are compliant with the best practices and methods for online digital encyclopedias.
