Among our 101 Best Web Sites for 2008, this week we’re highlighting the Library of Congress and Diigo:
- The nation’s library has digitized more than 9 million documents, photos and maps here—access them through American Memory or the Prints and Photographs Online Catalog (which lists the library’s entire collection; results for digitized items link to the image). Need to find a book? The library catalog has just about every book in existence. Click the Researchers link for many other resources including bibliographies and collection guides, information on genealogical materials, links to research databases, and international resources.
- Diigo, short for Digest of Internet Information, Groups and Other Stuff, is a tool that lets you highlight and annotate parts of Web pages for yourself or for sharing with other researchers. You can organize and search your bookmarks, and it all works in your favorite Web browser.
