Re: Online resources for researching history


VM138,

Have you got a weblink for them I can put up? I actually haven't heard of that service before.

Re: Online resources for researching history


Here is the link for Google book search http://books.google.co.uk/bkshp?hl=en&tab=wp
The problem with Google books is that not all of the text is available on line, it is more of a service to get you interested into buying the book under study. That said it is an easy way to get hold of the latest literature.
Yes Gile na Gile I have found Intute very helpful, as well as Jstor, but as I am no longer a student Jstor is out of my reach, but I did down load plenty of articles of interest before my library card ran out.

Perhaps this thread should be moved up to being a sticky so it doesn't disappear off the bottom of the screen?

A project of mine, mostly for quick daily tidbits of history for iPhone users, Today In History.

Sidenote: If you're a history buff and you see something missing you can add events easily, so it's win/win.
