The Encyclopedia Galactica is the standard reference in Isaac Asimov's Foundation universe. Excerpts from the Encyclopedia often feature before a story in Asimov's Foundation Series. These excerpts are used to give the reader background information, and often tease readers about what happens in the story.


The Encyclopedia was published and updated by the Encyclopedia Foundation following its establishment on Terminus.
