The Encyclopedia

The Encyclopedia is the product of the Embryo Project. It includes digital objects and links them through exhibits and collections. Digital objects include three types, all of which reside in the HPS Repository at the Marine Biological Laboratory or through links. Items include “found objects” that are found, collected, curated, and added to the repository. Descriptive articles are written by the Embryo Project seminar and others, and are then edited and added to the collection. Interpretive essays and exhibits add a layer of narrative stories and displays of collected materials.
