Electronic Reference Library, Phase 2 Analysis of Web-Based Content Management Systems for Managing Iowa DOT Engineering Specifications: Assessing Best Practices

This proposal addresses construction of an online content management system that will support distributed collaborative authorship and editing of the Iowa DOT's Specifications Section documents. The project builds on previous work between Iowa DOT and Iowa State's Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering Department on the Electronic Reference Library (ERL). Just as the ERL vastly improved distribution of these documents, the proposed content management system will streamline their production and editing by consolidating the text into an XML-based database system that supports refined version control, detailed editorial workflows, and multiple output formats.
