EOLSS — 'World's Largest On-Line Encyclopedia'


EOLSS stands for Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems, a particularly unfortunate name for this new online resource.

Sounds like a place you'd go to buy a mechanical ventilator. But I digress.

The content outline is illustrated above.

From the website:

    The EOLSS body of knowledge is an integrated compendium of 16 component encyclopedias.

    Within these are 185 themes, each of which has been compiled under the editoria supervision of a recognized world expert.

    The size of a theme may vary from 10 to 240 chapters.

    A chapter may be 5,000 to 30,000 words long.

    The virtual library is augmented and updated on a monthly basis.

$30 a year for students, $59 for everyone else here.
