Columbia's community encyclopedia

A project of the Columbia Missourian
This online encyclopedia is a new project of, launched in November 2010. It was conceived by former Missourian staffers — students at the Missouri School of Journalism —  to be a reference tool for the community.

The basic idea is that an entry in CoMo You Know would fill in the gap left after episodic news coverage. The idea is to offer context, background and resources for further information when possible.  When proposing the project, students said it “will provide a deeper picture of what a story means to the reader and the community."
Missourian editors think the CoMo You Know will be an asset to the community.
Join us in this project by reviewing our list of entries and making suggestions for more.
