Now THIS is a gem of the internet!
- I recall when I first saw digital images of the Dead Sea Scrolls on
the internet back when web-browsing sounded more like looking for
spiders... There had been a controversy about control of the
release of the scroll images, and eventually they were shared with
the world for the first time, for scholarly study and for the casual
I had a similar sense of the rich potential of the internet (for
research and otherwise) when I first heard about the Digital
Anthropology Resources for Teaching project out of Columbia U. at
the annual meetings a few years back.
And now I just heard about the Darwin Archives! All of Darwin's
works (including notebooks, letters etc.) are available. What a
great resource. My apologies if this duplicates information already
shared, but it sure bears repeating, it seems to me.
