The Oklahoma Almanac, the state's official blue book, has been published by the Oklahoma Department of Libraries since 1981. It was formerly known as the Directory of Oklahoma.
Similar to other state’s Blue Books, the Almanac includes information on Oklahoma’s state agencies, and the executive, judicial, and legislative branches of government.
The Almanac also includes election results, county statistics, a tourism section, a wildlife and nature section, Oklahoma history, federal government contacts, lists of Oklahoma museums and statewide associations, and more.
It became a tradition to add a special feature section to the biennial publication. Past features have included Oklahoma’s sports heroes, Native American heritage, the state’s political history, home-based businesses, the centennial of the 1889 land run, and the literary heritage of the state. The 2013–2014 Almanac looked at Oklahoma’s historical relationship to Air and Space. The 2015–2016 edition celebrated the rich history of Oklahoma Battlefields and Military Forts. The 2019-2020 Almanac highlights the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage (PDF).
