    ARTstor ( is another terrific resource for teaching history. It contains almost a million extremely high-quality images that can be viewed using sophisticated tools for zooming and comparing images. It covers a broad range of fields. I recently consulted it, for example, in order to view architecture, coins, and artifacts from early Islamic history, but they have works from all cultures and all times, including 70,000 images that they just added from Magnum (which covers the best of photojournalism from the Spanish Civil war to the civil rights movement and all kinds of other things). Images like these are so helpful for bringing course material alive.

    Professors whose courses touch on African history should also look at Aluka (, which is a collaborative digital library of materials from and about Africa. The images found there range from photos of anti-Apartheid activities to incredible interactive 3D models of Timbuktu (Mali), Lalibela (Ethiopia), and other places—among lots of other things.

    I am looking for information about a WPA project that is in Summit County, Ohio. This is called the Dickerhoof Ditch that are on the side of a major road in Green. I would like any information that I can get on these Ditches. Please email me information or links to web sites that may have information about this. Thank you very much. Amy Nichols
