Reference Resources: Article Provides Brief Look at The Colorado Encyclopedia Project
By the time school’s back in session, Colorado students – and anyone seeking more information about Centennial State topics – can turn to The Colorado Encyclopedia, a growing online database now available in prototype form at coloradoencyclopedia.org.
The encyclopedia is expected to contain close to 500 articles by September, with many entries focused on state history and geared toward readers in fourth through 10th grades. Resources also are available for educators.
A project of Colorado Humanities in collaboration with Colorado State University Libraries, the University Press of Colorado and History Colorado, the encyclopedia received funding for the initial phase of development from the National Endowment for the Humanities and a History Colorado State Historical Fund grant award.
