Historical Resource Directory:

This document is intended to provide a useful, up to date catalogue of useful historical websites divided into rough sections to make searching easier. The first section of the directory lists general resources, the second focuses on rough time periods, and the third lists them by country/event. Obviously, due to the nature of the resources there is bound to be some overlap. If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to contact me. If you wish to submit a link to the list, please contact me. I hope everyone finds this useful.

Great list!

A nice collection, although generally inferior to Perseus: The Latin Library

A wonderful and very professional site on Constantinople: Byzantium 1200

Contains digital copies of the Patrologia Latina and the Patrologia Graeca. In print, each of those sets runs to several hundred volumes: http://www.documentacatholicaomnia.eu/a_1010_Conspectus_Omnium_Rerum_Alphabeticus_Litter a.html

I'm glad you like it.

Great contribution too. Thank you.

Since I can't edit posts, the links are now going to be formatted by me and updated by diddyriddick, but obviously we don't want to make him update it every 5 minutes... So I'll only send the updates to him when there are quite a few. It will be done at some point though. A massive thanks to diddy for giving me a hand.

First I would like to say you have come up with a great list.

Along with Google books, Google News can be a valuable resource when looking into historic accounts.

Example: The Daily Pittsburgh Gazette - Google News Archive Search

A couple of suggestions to add to the American History list.

The Library of Congress
Library of Congress Home

The Official Records of The War of the Rebellion
eHistory at OSU | Online Books | The Official Records of the Civil War

Edit: I see there is already a link to Cornell Univ. OR's.

It's not particularly a research resource, but UCBerkley has a lot of their introductory courses online. In some cases they do go into advanced or current issues. I haven't watched the history lectures, but they are good learning resource.



[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCxABzNzYeQ"]History 5 - Lecture 2 - YouTube[/ame]

Another one I came across a couple of days ago is a project about Civil War Data Mining.

Hidden Patterns of the Civil War


As far as resources go... Google is by far the best resource, as it often connects them all. I find limiting search to .edus or .govs very very often helps me find better material.

So instead of searching, like this

http://www.google.ca/search?q=astrology

You could try this to get much more relevant and non-commercial results.

site:.edu astrology - Google Search

site:.gov astrology - Google Search

Thank you for posting this. I have been to a few of these websites to look for articles, but I had no idea there was so much more out there. They will come in handy for sure, since I have a few papers to write this semester.

Must have taken you a while to compile them! Nice job.

I can't believe that I missed this earlier. A massive database containing a wealth of general art and images of historical artefacts, and even just photographs. Useful for just about any historical study you can imagine. Welcome to ARTstor
