I have come across a few extra-special web based resources for genealogy and history research. The resources include:
- The Internet Archive-“The Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars, and the general public.”
- europeana-“a place for inspiration and ideas. Search through the cultural collections of Europe, connect to other user pathways and share your discoveries.”
- dlibra- “dLibra is used by institutions such as academic and public libraries to make stored digital publications available on the Internet. These institutions by using PIONIER network and dLibra software create Polish platform of distributed digital libraries.”
I have discovered numerous extremely valuable documents on these sites, all of which are now located on ManyRoads, in addition to existing on their original home(s).
