Over the summer, many of us traveled to participate in internships, present papers, and attend conferences. There is always something new to discover in our field, and some of our research led to online discoveries: new websites or updates to some of our favorite online resources.
Of course, we’d like to share our findings with you. On the right side of our page, we’ve added a few more links:
1. A digital archive of Les Modes, a fashion periodical (1902 – 1934)
2. The digital collections of the Library of Congress, which includes free downloads of high-resolution images
