OTHER USEFUL RESOURCES

 

  • NOBA Project Psychology textbooks – expertly compiled textbooks that fit the scope and sequence of common courses; usable as-is or customizable to individual needs.
  • iDigBio – multiple US institutions are contributing specimen records and data to this massive site (including UConn). A tutorial is available.
  • Zoosphere – while much smaller than some of the other digital specimen collections, the Berlin Museum of Natural History’s Zoosphere stands out by using multiple images of its insect specimens to create 3D views of specimens. (Note: very computer intensive!)
  • Historical Voices – audio collections and an audio archiving standardization project.
  • Citizen Archivist – tag, transcribe, subtitle, and otherwise contribute to the mission of the National Archives.
  • Sociological Images: For Instructors – a meme-based, humorous spin on sociological concepts. The For Instructors page includes course guides that follow common textbook organization, readings, and assignments.
