RIBA launches rival to Wikipedia

The RIBA has launched its answer to the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia – an internet knowledge bank called RIBAPedia.

Developed by the institute’s research and development department, the website will be unveiled on Friday 15 August and will cover everything from profiles of schools of architecture to research papers.

It is understood the encyclopaedia will use the same ‘mediawiki’ software as Wikipedia, allowing anyone to contribute to the site.

Hailed as a ‘collaborative free source’ by the RIBA, the institute hopes the site will also become the online bible on study guidance, funding guidance on research and worldwide scholarships, and links to journals and professional societies.
