Links, Links, Links, Dare I say it: A “Flood” of Links!

May 17, 2011Patrick NunnallyUncategorizedComments Off on Links, Links, Links, Dare I say it: A “Flood” of Links!

Okay, I’m sorry, but I just had to do that.  School’s finally over for the academic year, and the marathon that began at Labor Day is now nearly done.  A few more emails to send and I think we’re there.

Our intrepid staff of Joanne Richardson (Digital Wizard) and Andrea Long (Graduate-student-wizard-in-training) have been holding the fort admirably.

The “links page,” on our Flood Forum has just been updated with connections to many of the social media contributors who we have found to be most informative during the ongoing flooding emergency.  And, yes, we insist on telling you something about all these sources; pages of blue hotlinks are SO last century!

In the unlikely event that you’ll still have time for more flood coverage, but with the hope that you’ll be consumed with curiosity about where all these stories are taking place, we’ve updated the River Atlas with very substantial collections on “River Floods.”  The multi-collection functionality works best in Google Earth, but if you lack the plug-in (or your agency “preventers of information technology” (thanks, Dilbert!) won’t let you access Google Earth, click on the tab for “River Atlas in Google Maps.”  Here all of the entries are displayed at once; go into the Mississippi Delta region to find what you’re looking for.

Enjoy your learning!  And be sure to let us know what else we can add that would help you keep up with this epic event.
