LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ The Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and

Culture goes online Tuesday. The nearly two million dollar

undertaking coordinated out of the Butler Center at the Little Rock

library will launch with about 500 entries. The encyclopedia's Web

site includes entries divided into 24 categories, including

folklore and folklife, politics and government and tourism. During

the next four years, researchers plan to update the site with

thousands of additional entries, along with photos and videos.
