A Few Notes on Using These Sources

As a long time student (and now teacher) of the Humanities, I know how difficult it can be to find sources. So, I decided to put this blog together to help my students (and anyone else who’s interested) more easily find sources for their research. Keep in mind, however, that there are many different types of sources, and the sites included here may not be appropriate for every paper. For example, because most peer reviewed sources are kept behind a paywall (or a college’s databased subscription), it is unlikely that you will find any sources of those types here. Some sites may contain books, while others may have original sources, and still others just offer opinions.

Inclusion of a website, article, video, etc. on this blog is not intended as a sign that I endorse anything but the pursuit of knowledge. I give the sites here all credit for everything they get right (and anything they may occasionally get wrong). All claims, opinions, concepts, etc. are the product of the individual site (and their authors), and don’t necessarily reflect my own. I encourage you to question everything as you do your research.

If you are the owner of one of the sites I’ve included, and you’d like to add something to my description or ask that I remove your site from this blog, you only need ask (here in the comments). If, on the other hand, you would like to see your site (or one that you frequent) included here, feel free to let me know (here in the comments); and I’ll be happy to take a look to see if it fits with my criteria.

Each of these blog entries contains a blurb about the site, object, article, etc. and a link to that resource. When using these sources, you should use the blurb for informational purposes only and cite the resource itself (after following the link).

Above all else, I hope that everyone finds something about the Humanities that excites them here.
