How to start your RISM website

RISM hosts web space for its working groups and contributors at no charge. This is a great way to share information about your project with users, RISM contributors, project stakeholders, and the international community.

RISM websites are designed and edited using a web-based program called Typo3. There is no separate software to install. Training is provided by the Zentralredaktion.
