The original Cheshire II development was carried out at the UC Berkeley School of Information Management and Systems, and was underwritten by a grant from the Department of Education. Participants include Prof. Ray Larson (principle investigator), Lucy Kuntz, Jerry McDonough, Ralph Moon, and Paul O'Leary.

The system is currently changing almost daily; so please be prepared for, and pardon, occasional interruptions or modifications in service.
