Need primary sources? Got Footnote?

In perusing my copy of the November/December issue of Public Libraries, the publication of the Public Library Association, I discovered a v.v. cool website, Footnote!  

(from the site)Footnote is a place where original historical documents are combined with social networking in order to create a truly unique experience involving the stories of our past.  The Footnote collections feature documents, most never before availabe on the Internet, relating to the Revolutionalry War, Civil War, World War I and II, U.S. presidents, historical newspapers, natuarliazation documents and more.

Membership options include a basic free membership with some limitations on access to premium images and a monthly ($11.95) or yearly ($69.95) All-Access membership.  So, if historical research is one of your interests, Footnote might be of interest to you!

Happy Reading!
