What is Digital Alexandria?

Digital Alexandria is a way of cataloging and storing the collective Arts & Sciences knowledge of the members of the SCA.  How often have you wished to be able to read someone’s research, or attended a class only to have lost the hand out?  Maybe you want to start researching something but don’t know where to start?  This website contains A&S projects that have been submitted by the users.  You can search for projects by meta tag or feel free to “browse the stacks”.
