Title:Encyclopedia of Alabama

The Encyclopedia of Alabama is a free, online reference resource on Alabama's history, culture, geography, and natural environment. It was developed through a partnership of the Alabama Humanities Foundation and Auburn University and with the generous financial support of its founding sponsors. EOA offers articles written or adapted specifically for it and, when possible, enhanced with multimedia content. New content is added to the site regularly. The Alabama Humanities Foundation holds the copyright to EOA's original content in trust for the citizens of Alabama. EOA is a collaborative effort involving many individuals and organizations. EOA authors come from all areas of scholarship and range from scholars at academic institutions to scientists out in the field. The multimedia content that makes EOA a dynamic educational tool is made possible by the generosity of organizational partners that have shared their collections and archives with the project. EOA's mission is to present trustworthy and authoritative information on a wide range of topics. Its editors believe that in order to be credible EOA must strike a balance between celebration and condemnation. Alabama's problems are not glossed over, nor are its accomplishments and successes overlooked. Rich and poor; educated and illiterate; Confederate and Unionist; planter and slave; male and female--Alabamians of all stripes--have contributed to the development of the state, and EOA endeavors to present all these stories.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
