In this section of the site we bring you curated collections of images, books, audio and film, shining a light on curiosities and wonders from a wide range of online archives. With a leaning toward the surprising, the strange, and the beautiful, we hope to provide an ever-growing cabinet of curiosities for the digital age, a kind of hyperlinked Wunderkammer – an archive of materials which truly celebrates the breadth and variety of our shared cultural commons and the minds that have made it. Some of our most popular posts include visions of the future from late 19th century France, a dictionary of Victorian slang and a film showing the very talented “hand-farting” farmer of Michigan. With each post including links back to the original source we encourage you to explore these wonderful online sources for yourself. Check out our Sources page to see where we find the content.

Images Actives - Création de cours et exerciseurs Donnez du sens aux images ! Images Actives, développé dans le cadre du groupe ENUMA du CRDP de l’académie de Versailles (Centre Régional de Documentation Pédagogique), est un outil bien pensé, hardi, permettant d’associer les différentes parties d’une image à une description. Pour transformer votre image statique en image interactive, deux possibilités s’offrent à vous : avec un logiciel de traitement d’image tels Pinta ou Gimp par exemple, découpez selon la forme que vous souhaitez les différentes parties de l’image. Enregistrez-les ensuite au format PNG puis importez-les dans le logiciel Images Actives. Dans ce cas là, vous pouvez découper les différentes parties de l’image avec Images Actives découpez directement les différentes parties de l’image en zones rectangulaires. La position, la taille et la couleur des titres et des commentaires sont également personnalisables. Actuellement l’exportation de l’image et de ses commentaires est effectuée en flash.

The collection currently contains more than 3 millions of references (mostly to journal articles, conference papers and technical reports), clustered in about 1500 bibliographies, and consists of more than 2.3 GBytes (530MB gzipped) of BibTeX entries. More than 1 million of references contain URLs to an online version of the paper. For more information on the contents of this collection have a look at the bibliographic statistics.

Internet History Sourcebooks Project Internet History Sourcebooks Project Paul Halsall, Editor The Internet History Sourcebooks Project is a collection of public domain and copy-permitted historical texts presented cleanly (without advertising or excessive layout) for educational use. 1. This project is both very large and fairly old in Internet terms. At the time it was instigated (1996), it was not clear that web sites [and the documents made available there] would often turn out to be transient. As a result there is a process called "link rot" - which means that a "broken link" is a result of someone having taken down a web page. Feedback and Help While I encourage notes, comments and feedback in general, I am unable to reply to all of them. I am unable to help locate details about your family, or give translations of your name or nickname into Chinese (a very common request)!
