Project: Mammal Species of the World
Faculty: DeeAnn Reeder
DP&S liaison: Luyang Ren and Diane Jakacki
Semester and Year: Ongoing
Mammal Species of the World is the foremost international reference for identifying and verifying recognized names and taxonomies of mammals. Professor DeeAnn Reeder approached L&IT in 2014 to redesign the website and database for the edition. A design team led by Leo Botinelly and Luyang Ren, with other members from L&IT, have collaborated with Reeder to create a dynamic new editorial and publication application that will accompany the 4th edition. Now in the final phases of beta testing, MSW editors will begin working in the interface in early 2017. When published, MSW Online will offer a unique open source text used by scholars and students all over the world.
