The Public Archive

I have been sent the link to a new website, The Public Archive

'We are hoping that for now, the Public Archive will serve as a resource for Haiti's history; in the future, it will serve as a similar resource for other countries mis-, under-, or poorly-represented within the mainstream media. The Public Archive compiles historical essays, archival material, and well-informed journalism from across the web, mainly from freely available, if not always easily accessible, open-source journals, digital repositories,and online newspapers and periodicals. We hope it can serve as a teaching resource, and we ask you to encourage students and student organizations to link to it via their social networking utilities. (Our own Facebook page is at:http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=343535867070 and we twitter attwitter.com/public_archive)
Finally, the Public Archive is (and will always be) a work in progress. We'd appreciate feedback and comments and please send us links to potential sources'
