The OE is Green!

The Encyclopedia’s editorial process is completely paperless— our authors and editors use a one-of-a-kind online workshop developed by Portland State University. We’ve published hundreds of authoritative entries on Oregon history and culture without hurting a single Douglas-fir. Donate your green to The OE and keep us—and the trees— growing.
