The purpose of this site is to provide supplementary material for students in some of the courses I teach, but if you find something interesting here, enjoy!
Under LEARN SOMETHING, you'll see content arranged by course titles.
Under EXPLORE, you'll find content that is more about research methods and sources. This is where you'll find links to archives, libraries, museums, government data collections (e.g. the US Census; federal crime statistics), social research organizations and more. If you're writing a paper or a report, you might find some good source material here.

ELK TALES is a collection of stories about Benezette, Pennsylvania. This small village in northwestern Pennsylvania attracts thousands of people every year who come to see the wild elk, ride or hike the trails, and just enjoy PA's Great Outdoors. They are following in the footsteps of a long and interesting line of loggers, miners, shopkeepers, wildcatters, railroaders, farmers, hunters and anglers who made their homes here.
