Online State Encyclopedias – Minnesota

The 19th one we have found, MNOPEDIA, offers the reader articles dealing with all aspects of Minnesota. Though still in beta, there is enough information here to satisfy most readers. The articles can be accessed either by index or topic. “Expert essays” are more extended treatments, such as How Cities and Towns Shaped the State; most articles have links both in the main text and the bibliography. The links in some cases lead to the Minnesota History magazine, whose online content is freely available from 1915-2005. Most entries are accompanied by overviews or chronologies. or “turning points.” A fascinating read is Traveling Libraries.
