Welcome to our online Etiquette Library

It has long been a dream at The Emily Post Institute to build a comprehensive, searchable, online etiquette reference to supplement our flagship book, Emily Post’s Etiquette. Well, here it is!

This is our encyclopedia of etiquette, housing content from all of our published Emily Post Institute materials. Whether you need an etiquette question answered or just want to explore a topic, your search starts here.

Etiquette is a code of behavior based on treating others with honesty, respect, and consideration. This finds its way into every interaction we have, from planning a party or calculating a tip to writing a thank-you note or taking a cell phone call in public (or not!).
