March 2006 Sites

Here are a few neat sites to explore and share:

One stop shopping for world news. Founded in 1998, provides access to over
500 media sources and 4000 thematic and regional news sites in numerous
languages. Includes links to regional news from all over the world and
links to broadcast news. There are audio links to Web
broadcasts from the BBC, CBC, NPR and Canal Sur Radio in Spain.
Searchable with keyword searching in 23 language. Recommended in Choice.

IUCN Red List of Threatened Species
Highly recommended in Choice. Authoritative information on conservation
status, taxonomy, and distribution of animals - includes evaluation of
risk of extinction. The site is searchable and provides external links to
relevant taxonomic and image databases. Really cool.

Official U.S. Naval History Site
This is the official military Web site for U.S. naval history. It's laid
out for ease of use and includes online texts of administrative
histories and reports (primary research material). Also cool is a link
to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Reading Room where there are
links to information on Amelia Earhart, the Bermuda Triangle, the attack
on Pearl Harbor, the "Philadelphia Experiment," and lots more!

Enjoy these and think of them if you get patron requests for which they
might be useful!
