Encyclopedia Mythica:
"Determining authority can be tricky with Encyclopedia Mythica, as 
information is taken from a variety of sources and most entries are not 
signed. A list of resources used in creating some of the articles is 
available and include standard sources in the field, such as Joseph 
Cambell's series on the Power of Myth and Edith Hamelton's Mythology: 
Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes. Other entries are written by the 
encyclopedia's editorial staff and founder, Micha F. Lindemans. Anyone 
interested in contributing to the encyclopedia is encouraged to do so."  
ACRL Internet Reviews 

There are an amazing number of contributors from Clarksville Middle School.

Many articles have no citations so no idea where the author got or 
compiled information from, I couldn't find an author page with 
information about either the main editor or any of the contributors 
(Wikipedia does that much).

Images don't cite sources either. So how do you know the image is being 
properly identified?

The rest of the list (of online DB)  looks pretty solid.

"The state can't give you free speech, and the state can't take it away. You're 
born with it, like your eyes, like your ears. Freedom is something you assume, then 
you wait for someone to try to take it away. The degree to which you resist is the 
degree to which you are free..." - Utah Phillips
