Here is a long awaited update of useful websites for writers:
- Internet Public Library - This site is must if you are looking for information on a vast array of subjects, including arts and humanities; business and economics; education; law, government and politics; and a host of other topics. You'll find the reference section especially helpful.
- Library of Congress - The ultimate institution dedicated to cultivating the knowledge of people worldwide, the Library of Congress makes available online an endless collection of digital articles, many of them otherwise rare. Check out its Global Gateway to connect to materials beyond the USA. The print and photograph catalog is quite a treat for capturing a writer's imagination. For instance, the Ansel Adams photographs of Japanese-American internment in California during World War II.
- MIT Writing Courses - The Massachusetts Institute of Technology offers free writing courses through its OpenCourseWare program. For starters, download and study the materials of Communicating in Technical Organizations or Communicating in Cyberspace.
If you don't find what you're looking for, you can always browse the writers' websites WORDS ON THE LINE has collected over the past eight years.
