The Rossetti Archive is being created by Jerome McGann at the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities at the University of Virginia. From the beginning it has been designed as a complete archive of the written and graphical works of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and intended as a model for the development of electronic critical archives. I will trace the development of the project from its inception in 1992 though the present, focusing on the challenges presented by developing such a large project with relatively limited resources. Included will be a discussion of the creation of a set of SGML DTDs, data development and management, and project design and implementation. I will also discuss the evolution of McGann's publishing agreement with the University of Michigan Press.
