Background information resources | University Libraries | Virginia Tech

These are often considered to be general reference sources, meaning that they provide basic facts and knowledge that can be used as a foundation for one's research. A little time spent in background information resources can save a tremendous amount of time when searching in databases and more subject-specific resources.

Sharrock's insight:

This is a resource to explore ways characters may meet for the first time (or second time in a different light). This is also helpful for introverts who struggle with meeting new people but want to.

Preditors and Editors: About P&E

Headquartered in Petersburg, Virginia, USA since July 1997, this resource is intended as a simple compendium for the serious writer, composer, game designer, or artist to consult for information, regardless of genre. Even readers will find Preditors & Editors useful in locating reading material. As well, the listings may be freely copied and distributed without charge. After all, our aim is to assist. However, please secure permission from the appropriate authors before reproducing any of the opinions contained within Preditors & Editors as those are copyright protected material.

Many listings included quoted material. Some are attributed. In some instances, the contributor asked not to be identified. For some quotes, an author could not be identified because the quoted material came from a site description that in many instances P&E was asked to use. Those quotes are considered copyright of their respective sites. (added 1/13/04)

Sharrock's insight:

This website was shared to help writer investigate a publisher interested in his writing. I don't know how useful and reputable the website is, but it came up in a discussion with publised writers. Any feedback on the website's use?

Data Visualization: Modern Approaches | Smashing Magazine

Data Visualization: Modern Approaches | Smashing Magazine | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
Data presentation can be beautiful, elegant and descriptive. There is a variety of conventional ways to visualize data - tables, histograms, pie charts and bar graphs are being used every day, in every project and on every possible occasion.

 

Note that the date of the article is 2007. I wonder what is available now. Which data visualization tools are available today? 

Sharrock's insight:

This is a good low-level data visualiation exploration. Dated 2007, though.
