Researchers faced with using documentary sources for the first time, such as correspondence, diaries, and literary manuscripts, are plunged into a world far different from the familiar library setting, with its card or computer catalogs, bibliographies, and other resource-finding tools. Over and over, studies of research methodology among scholars reveal that they learn by some sort of collegial osmosis and general fumbling about until they figure things out. There is an easier way. Burke explains the professional techniques employed by archivists and manuscript curators, describing what they do and why, so the beginning researcher has a foundation for understanding how to search and access personal papers. Burke surveys problems of organization, access, alternative sources, and legal issues with amusing anecdotes and examples. Research and the Manuscript Tradition is a reflection on using manuscripts for research, administering manuscript and archival collections and institutions, and the lessons learned from teaching a manuscripts administration course for more than twenty years. It provides a solid theoretical base as well as practical advice and a glimpse of the satisfaction that can come from working with personal papers. Contents: Yuan Shih-Kai, Harriet Monroe, and the Manuscript Tradition- The Recovery of Reality- Opening the Doors to Scholarship- Gathering the Evidence- Mapping the Roads to the Past- Tradition Confronts Technology- Organizing a Life- Good Deeds Do Not Go Unrewarded- The Cultural Crypt- Not by Vaults and Locks...- Law, Curatorial Ethics, and the Researcher- Personal Communication in the Electronic Age.

    Hello Jeremy,I need to build a website/blog. I have been posting a daily post/blog/devotional on FB and texting. Well, its grown to hundreds and just too much for these platforms, so I need a website so the people can "find me" rather than or in addition me reaching out to them. Just a place where I can post, then people can comment, like, share, etcЙ Each post (in text) has a corresponding picture/graphic. Thats the main part, the daily messages. Then I need a section for videos to be posted/shared/watched. The ability for people to join as members. And of course, to make donations if they choose to. Another section for our once-a-week "special interest" post. So basically, there are five topics and the one special interest post each week. I was looking for the greatest flexibility to add/expand the site later. I didn't want to build a whole site, then have to start over from scratch. I had found a wordpress template that I liked. From what I"ve been reading here, squarespace or weebly seems best. Open to your expert suggestions. thanks

      I usually use photos listed as "free to use," or some similar term. Does this mean that these are not subject to the rules you mentioned. I searched for these images with the very best of intentions and was on at least one occasion unable to find find anyone linked to the image I used.You are right, it is a minefield especially for the uninitiated.

    You can read the first half of WIN on Wattpad, and the rest of the book is still being written С I hope to be done by the end of May, but no promises due to my health issues.
