|Encyclopedia of Alabama Newest Online Reference Tool|
Governor Riley officially launched the Encyclopedia of Alabama on September 15. It is now online and ready for use. The Encyclopedia of Alabama is a reference resource on Alabama ’s history, culture, geography and natural environment that is available for free from any computer with Internet access.
EOA (www.EncyclopediaofAlabama.org) is like a traditional print encyclopedia with its emphasis on authoritative content based on sound scholarship; the edited entries are written by scholars and experts from across the globe. The online format makes it a modern reference tool offering video, audio, graphics and hyperlinks.
The site currently has more than 500 articles, 2,000 images and four hours of video clips. New content will be added on a weekly basis—more than 5,000 potential articles have been identified and that list continues to grow.
