One of our LC colleagues called our attention to this site, which centers
around topics of concern to Frederick Douglass. It is a scholarly site, but
I think many of you will be interested in some of the resources and its
construction. It contains both internal and external links that sample other
archives. For example, discussion of the 19th amendment is linked to Votes
for Women and specifically Elizabeth Cady Stanton's Seneca Falls address.
It is interesting that the Webmaster/Editor invites other scholars to add to
the archive in a variety of ways--by providing annotations for
bibliographies, by providing additional resources etc. It strikes me that
this sort of a research model might work for some of your student "archives"
For those of you really into Web research, part of this site is a pathfinder
to reference Web sites of all sorts.
Try it; I think you may like it!
