Encyclopedia Dubuque is written and edited by Randolph W. Lyon. Images are provided by Robert Reding, Norman Zepeski, and many others. The encyclopedia website is maintained by staff at Carnegie-Stout Public Library using MediaWiki software. Angela and Ransom Briggs helped establish the site in 2008.

The encyclopedia was made possible by a grant from the Dubuque City Council’s 175th Anniversary Celebration Committee. The encyclopedia was also made possible by U.S. Bank Dubuque Branch which donated full copyright ownership of the original 1991 print edition of Randolph Lyon’s Dubuque: The Encyclopedia to the Carnegie-Stout Public Library Foundation.
