The Emily Post Institute Etipedia®

Welcome to your Online Etiquette Encyclopedia


Our Vision

It has long been a dream at The Emily Post Institute to build what we call the Etipedia®, a comprehensive, searchable, online etiquette reference to supplement our flagship book, Etiquette. Well, here it is! The Etipedia® is our encyclopedia of etiquette, housing content from all of our published Emily Post Institute materials: books, surveys, videos, podcasts, magazine columns, and online articles. Whether you need an etiquette question answered or just want to explore a topic, your search starts here.


There are two easy ways to use the Etipedia®:

1. You can browse the Etipedia® using the content tabs. All of the information in the Etipedia® is organized into sections and sub-sections that are identical to the chapters and sub-chapters in Etiquette, 18th edition.

  • Click one of the content areas below or to the left to browse and choose from the sub-categories.
  • Choose a sub-category of interest to view Etipedia® articles pertaining to that topic.
