Internet Resources for Keeping Up with History (Bibliography, Research, and Teaching)


Keeping Up with Professional History (Bibliography, Research, and Teaching): Free Internet Resources

This is an eclectic list (hopefully helpful and certainly selective and suggestive). It makes no attempt at comprehensiveness.  It is focused on English-language sources.  Most listed resources are on the Web (at least to some extent) and freely available. Resources for which there is a cost are, therefore, generally not included.  While it does respond to some research needs, it is not a guide to history reference sources.  Become familiar with its contents and you’ll be informed about many of the issues and methodologies that impact contemporary professional history.  Hopefully, you’ll find resources you’ll return to regularly for enjoyment and to enhance and facilitate your teaching and research. I recommend that you browse through the entire guide at least once.
