Working at the library has opened my mind to so many new resources. Being a senior in high school, I've been busy writing papers all year long. I was writing a research paper for school earlier this semester, and my topic was "the negative effects of texting on society." While chatting with some of my co-workers, they brought up the Research Databases that the library has to offer online.
Presenting "The American Civil War Research Database"
Want to know if your ancestor fought in the Civil War? A good place to start is with the American Civil War Research Database. You can find this database in the History databases. This resource can be a wealth of information about your Civil War ancestor. Not only can it help you determine who was involved in the Civil War, but it can also help you find out on which side they were fighting.
If you are an American History buff like me or a student researching historical subjects, do I have a database for you? This database is available online, and is titled American History in Video. It has full length Documentaries, many of which have been broadcast on the History Channel, A&E and PBS. I have spent a small fortune on buying DVDs of many of these documentaries, but here you can watch them as many times as you want for free.
Finally! The day Lord of the Rings lovers have been waiting for! The first day of filming The Hobbit! The prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Sadly, I have missed my chance to be in The Hobbit, but at least it is finally rolling. Filming of the two part movie began Monday, March 21, in New Zealand. Filming could take two years, but Part 1 is scheduled to come out in 2012.
