    Don't forget to post these as "Bookmarks," not "Topics," Ben. Makes it easier for everyone.

http://www.archives.gov/research/alic/tools/online-databases.html - 1 views

    Yes and no, Michael. What you've linked to is a page at the National Archives, which stores government documents. Most of the databases on that page can only be used if you're actually at the National Archives (or are logged in remotely to its network). But GMU subscribes to most of those databases, too. The main building for the National Archives (aka NARA for National Archives and Records Administration) is downtown on the National Mall -- it's worth a visit.

    Also, please post these as Bookmarks, not Topics! That way it's easier for us to click on the link you've shared: http://www.archives.gov/research/alic/tools/online-databases.html

    Whoa! Fascinating, Taylor. Amazing how people (me included) feel about the sacredness of books. Great story.

    But please do post these as Bookmarks, not Topics. :)

    A friend of mine just shared that on Twitter, too, Jonathan. Google does many, many things ... this one seems weird.

    Thanks, Brandon! Those are actually very good outlines of the history -- interesting. I've given you credit for this week's link. Can you please delete this topic, though, and repost those two links as Bookmarks? It'll keep the group tidier.

    Yes, interesting -- this may be one of the issues you choose to write about later in the semester.

    Jonathan, can you please delete this Topic and re-post the link as a Bookmark? I've given you credit already, but it'll keep the group neater. Thanks.

    Brittney, can you please delete this and post it as a Bookmark, not a topic? Thanks. I've given you credit for this, but it'll keep the group neater.

    Yay, Ellie, glad you're putting it into actual practice! I didn't even assign the word-processing shortcuts, and those will change your life if you do a lot of writing.
  • Amanda French
     
    By the way, please do post these as a "Bookmark" rather than a "Topic" -- that way all the comments and things will show up on the main group page.
