Literature Resources

Academic Info (http://www.academicinfo.net/index.html)
Self-described as "a directory of Internet resources tailored to a college or advanced high school audience. Each subject guide is an annotated listing of the best general Internet sites in the field, as well as a gateway to more advanced research tools. On each page you may find links to online publications, language and study aids, reference materials, databases, archives, virtual libraries, tutorials, as well as other educational materials." Not as expansive as HUMBUL or Voice of the Shuttle, but some interesting listings, including "African American History," "Buddhist Studies," and "Rock Art."
