Carol Kammen asks readers for their input on a new project which is a revised Encyclopedia for Local History.

She tells the journey of the first encyclopedia made in 2000, when encyclopedias were still widely used, as the internet was still in its infancy.

Kammen says that this new version of the encyclopedia aims to spell out the origins of state and local history organizations; government interest in local history organizations; the development of a sense of history in each state, works of state and local history, publications, major authors, archives, and museums; and themes of importance.
