The LOPedia is an in-depth catalog of Lake Oswego's municipal services and programs. The catalog contains program and service definitions, and provides information about what the City of Lake Oswego does it, and how much it costs. The programs and services are organized operationally by department.

The encyclopedia is updated on an as-needed basis with assistance from the City's Robert Kincaid Memorial Intern.
