Bibliography

Welcome to the digital bibliography of the Encyclopedia of Milwaukee. Affectionately called the EMKE DigBib, this resource can help you locate publications and resources related to the history of Milwaukee, its surrounding area, and the broader topics of study covered in our entries.

The EMKE DigBib is a digital companion to our spinoff print project, the Bibliography of Metropolitan Milwaukee, published in 2014 by Marquette University Press. The 344-page Bibliography of Metropolitan Milwaukee contains citations for more than 2,000 works relating to the history of the Milwaukee area, organized into nineteen topical chapters. The EMKE DigBib includes the contents of the “For Further Reading” lists at the ends of the EMKE entries and new work that has been published since 2014. The EMKE DigBib is organized into the same topical areas used in the Bibliography of Metropolitan Milwaukee and can be filtered according to these areas, much like our image library. With a few exceptions, the EMKE DigBib does not duplicate the contents of the Bibliography of Metropolitan Milwaukee. We encourage you to consult both the EMKE DigBib and the Bibliography of the Metropolitan Milwaukee for resources that can help answer your research questions and further your understanding of Milwaukee and its nearby communities.

The EMKE DigBib will be periodically updated as future scholarship is released. If you are the author of or know about a book or article relating to the history of Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, or Washington County that is not included, please let the EMKE editors know using the “Contact Us” link.
