Abstract

Online encyclopedias, fully exploiting the cross-referencing possibilities offered by hyperlinks have been widely made available to students and teachers on many university intranets. Use has not developed as could have been expected despite the congruence of encyclopedic information with university training. A research project, involving two university research units, an encyclopedia provider and a national research center on pedagogy, has been set up to study this situation. The issues addressed include specificity of encyclopedic information, optimization of encyclopedic information presentation, contents and reliability, instrumenting encyclopedic information retrieval and processing, and characterizing digital reading of online encyclopedias.
