The Encyclopedia of Milwaukee

Production of the Encyclopedia of Milwaukee, in print and digital form.

The project constitutes the middle phase of the production of The Encyclopedia of Milwaukee, to be published in online and print formats in 2017. The print volume will be organized as a traditional, one-volume, A-Z encyclopedia to be published by Northern Illinois University Press. The digital version, to be hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, will include the contents of the print volume, along with two other components powered by the digital format, which we call the "Underbook" and the "Overbook." The NEH project period consists of two distinct but interrelated activities: 1) developing the intellectual content of the encyclopedia, approximately 320 original entries and other content, thereby aggregating and synthesizing existing knowledge about Milwaukee and its region; and 2) creating a digital platform to acquire, preserve, and disseminate that intellectual content, in digital and print text, audio, and video form.
