  1. For some time now, the "World's Biggest Library" ...has been the internet. Organizations such as Project Gutenberg, HathiTrust, archive.org -- often in conjunction with university and State libraries -- are actively scanning out-of-print resources onto the various internet collections (allowing free access to anyone with a computer and an internet connection.) Some amazing resources are available... Shiloh, Battle of, Tenn., 1862 In the days before the internet, Librarians recorded reference material, and filed it away, in accordance with strict guidelines (such as the above designation for "Shiloh"). Three x five cards were used to record essential information IRT all resources, and the restricted space available on the 3 x 5 card encouraged inclusion of only the most necessary details. Space also restricted what resources were available on Library shelves: it costs money (usually taxpayer dollars) to expand a library; much cheaper to hire use of a warehouse and cram "infrequently used" resources into it. And references that appear to be no longer needed (determined through lack of use) are often sold at Library auctions. http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu The above link is the Home Page for the University of Pennsylvania's contribution to the ever-increasing amount of resources streaming onto the internet: that UPenn is attempting to classify and compile "popular categories" of information, and make those included resources more accessible to the rest of us: http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/webbin/book/browse?type=lcsubc&key=Shiloh%2C Battle of%2C Tenn.%2C 1862&c=x The above link at "onlinebooks" takes you to all of the archived references known to feature Battle of Shiloh. Resources subject to copyright restriction are not included. Personalities (such as Generals Grant and Beauregard) are collected at their own separate links. This site is frequently updated, so if nothing catches your eye today, check back in a month... Cheers Ozzy
