In the past few decades, a number of large American cities have embarked on ambitious encyclopedia projects to document their history, culture, and geography. Indianapolis was one such city, and this impressive 1,600-page encyclopedia was published in 1994. Today, a digitized version resides on this Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis website, where it offers a wonderful way to learn about Indiana's largest city. Visitors can search the encyclopedia at their leisure, while the viewer makes it quite simple to print out selected pages and to zoom in and out on each page. The volume has a dozen overview essays covering broadcasting, African-Americans, cultural institutions, education, and journalism. Anyone with an interest in urban history and all things Hoosier will find this work to be tremendously valuable.
