We’ve added a few new things to our Tools for Digital Research page…
…the Darwin Correspondence Project. Staff in the UK and US have been working on transcribing and making available online Charles Darwin’s copious correspondence. About 15,000 letters are available on the site now, transcribed and described with a variety of searchable metadata including places, people, and scientific terms.
…the Transportation Library Menu Collection from Northwestern University. The collection includes over 400 menus from national and international airlines, cruise ships, and railroads.
…the Online Books Page from the University of Pennsylvania is a great aggregator site if you’re looking to get a sense of what books are available online in a particular subject or by a particular author. If you’ve already been to Project Gutenberg and the Internet Archive, this is a perfect third stop.
…and if you’ve already checked out our suggestions and want a little more help, try the Guide to Finding Interesting Public Domain Works Online from the Public Domain Review. This is a really helpful primer if you’re relatively new to online research or looking for some tips on how to conduct a more efficient search.
As always, for more from the Medical Heritage Library, please visit our full collection!
