CAMM Website Resources

Attention CAMM members!

I have recently created two new resource pages on the CAMM website. These public pages are intended to assist researchers and educators in using your online resources. Research Links provides links to information about your research collections and online tools for using those collections. Educational Materials is intended to assist educators find online tools for teaching maritime history. Aside from teacher training opportunities, this listing does not include programs offered at your facility but rather online curriculum and other resources that can be used offsite. I gathered these links by perusing your websites. Please let me know if I have overlooked a link that should be included.

A related resource page, Ship Plans Directory, has also been developed based on the survey forms many of you filled out last summer. Additional collections may be added by filling out the CAMM Ship Plans Survey form and returning it to my attention.
