Out to the...Baseball Hall of Fame

Even cats can't help noticing crowds of human baseball fans all over Long Island and the entire New York City area at this time of year. Whether you are an avid fan of the game or not, take a few minutes out of your study or work routine to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Visitors to this wonderful Web site of sports and social history can spend as much or as little time as they wish with facts, photos, and fun features about the national pastime. My favorite sections include the Baseball History page--with "This Day in Baseball History," interviews and chats with famous players, and game capsules--and the "Dressed to the Nines" baseball uniform exhibit. The Hall of Fame's research library staff has also compiled some great articles and entertaining stories about the "best players and teams in their best seasons" and lesser-known baseball characters. Enjoy!

Keeping Current

Keep up with this and your other favorite blogs and websites all in one place. My Yahoo and My Google are really easy-to-customize pages (aka RSS newsreaders for you techies out there) which allow you to read your favorite blogs and news services all on one page! You can even set up your page to get other information such as movie times, stock trackers, comics and the local weather.

If you need help, either respond to this posting with your email address or come visit your favorite Reference Librarian.

I do share library space with humans

We cats do not like to be taken for granted. One of my brethren in NJ took action against a bear that did not know his place.

The Avalon Project at Yale Law School

The Avalon Project is a massive collection of digital documents from the 18th century through today in the areas of law, history and diplomacy. There are many ways to search or browse. The site begins with a single top level Homepage. From there you can move to lists of documents organized by centuries, alphabetically by author/title or by subject or event. You can also move to a Search Page from the Homepage. Within the documents, many links have been added to take you from one document to another.
