Weekend update: The weekly reference collection/research gleanings:

The list is quite short this week; not much new comes up on holiday weeks, and I've already posted much of it, here and on the Herald blog. Among things I posted there this week: Holiday Travel tips.

In the midst of the mad cow stories, a couple interesting things: UPI has been trying to get BSE test info from USDA for months, and Did the Canadian case come from the U.S.?

More useful links....

Reference :
  • Airline logos: 75 pages of them, from
  • Educator's Reference Desk great education source directory from creators of ERIC database.
  • Festival Network Online search for art and music festivals, shows, craft fairs, etc.
  • Libdex: an international library guide, find info about a library, including branch libraries; also has a directory of library blogs, a Publishers search and a directory of online newspaper lists.
  • A Sightseeer's Guide to Engineering 7 'sights' in Florida, none in S. Fla.
  • UPDATE, S. Fla. Historical Soc. magazine now is putting some stories online. The link is to an index of all issues. Highlighted stories are available, like this one: Lost in the Everglades by The Herald's late Earl DeHart.
  • The National Map Viewer: this is a new mapping service from USGS: I like this pretty well, you can zoom in down to street level but all maps show topography as well as other features and you can customize it in a lot of ways.
  • a site for writers who don't have their own columns (in Spanish).
    Business, Statistics, Governments, Politics, Public Records, People, News, no links this week.

    Some Interesting stories/Weblogs:
