Absolutely free! (comment)


The Library of Congress has collected sets of "Free to Use and Reuse" items from its digital collections on a single page. The page indexes items that are in the public domain, have no copyright, or have been approved by the copyright owner for public use.  Each set is organized around a theme such as  "public domain films," "classic childrens' books." or "travel posters" and is first featured on the Library's home page.  The archive should add new collections as the library home page is updated.

Digital scholarship resource guide (comment)


Our sister list H-HistBibl has shared a link to the primer on digital scholarship from the Library of Congress written by Samantha Herron. This is a truly easy to-understand introduction to the tools and concepts beginners need to get started in this area....from explainning what meta-data and .xml mean to providing links to slightly more sophisticated services such as "The Programming Historian" and Gephi.

If you always wondered what all this was about but hesitated to ask, this short guide is for you.
