MedlinePlus: Twitter, Monticello, Fold3, More: Evening Buzz, July 4, 2012

?? Why would anyone tweet photos of their debit or credit cards? Yeah, so bad idea. Don’t do it!

Now online and still growing: the Asian Art Archive. “The organization, which is based in Hong Kong, has about 300,000 digital items in various forms, which it is releasing to the online public in stages. It is a work in progress: On one hand, new materials keep pouring in; on the other, some items have copyright or other restrictions.”

I love the idea behind unglue.it: a fundraising site to make out-of-print books freely available.

MedlinePlus files get more beautiful: “Prior to this release, the files only included basic information about all English and Spanish health topics, and they were published weekly. Now, they contain all currently displaying site records and links to related multiple languages content, related health topics, and primary NIH institutes. With this release, virtually all text and links available on MedlinePlus health topic pages become accessible in XML format.”

Get your 3-D Monticello on: “As hundreds of people visit Monticello on Wednesday to explore Jefferson’s historic plantation, there will be several new structures to see, thanks to the work of Earl Mark, a professor in the University of Virginia School of Architecture.”

Historical military records site Fold3 is offering free access to its Revolutionary War collection through July 15th. (Maybe why this site is such a slow load at the moment?)

RIP Andy Griffith. The North Carolina State Archives has released an Andy Griffith Flickr set. Good evening, Internet…
