Re: Online resources for researching history


JSTOR: JSTOR is a massive online database that allows people to quickly and easily find primary sources, the only killer, they have to be at least 2 years old I believe. It requires a subscription, but the subscription doesn't cost anything (?) the wording is confusing, but I can search free, so it must be free?

I could not agree more, JSTOR is excellent for accessing scholastic journals; the problem is that it is not accessible with out an accredited subscription. Out side of universities it is simply not possible to access JSTOR. Those of us who are no longer poor students can not afford the cost of JSTOR,

Here are some good ones I've stumbled upon;

This one's the mediaeval sourcebook online; has links to hundreds of uploaded texts.
http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/sbook2.html

For fans of all things Arthurian; the legends, the literature, it all seems to be here;
http://www.lib.rochester.edu/camelot/cphome.stm

Project Guttenburg; 28,000 books, mostly classics and still growing rapidly;
http://www.gutenberg.org/browse/authors/c#a435

And two great resources for studying Irish history;
http://www.ucc.ie/celt/publishd.html
http://www.celt.dias.ie/english/

Feel free to add your own. Guaranteed someone, somewhere, sometime will appreciate it plus it might spare you scratching your head wondering what that great site was on that you've now completely forgotten about.
Thanks for the Resources fred. I appreciate that. I was really having a hard time looking of history websites for my history essay. I am doing my essay writing project and I'm glad you shared these with us.
Thanks again
