Duke Chapel, Tumblr, Raleigh Bicycles, More: Tuesday Buzz, March 11, 2014

You can now update your Tumblr via a toll-free number. “…users can now go into their Tumblr Settings, in order to first associate their phone number with their Tumblr account, then dial 1-866-584-6757 to record the audio.” Looking forward to the millions of rump-dialed Tumblrs.

Genealogy search engine Mocavo added over 450 record indexes in one day last week.

From How-To Geek: Lesson 10 of The Complete Guide to GMail. Very thorough, with lots of hints here, and a link to each of the other 9 lessons.

Congratulations to the World Digital Library on reaching 10,000 items. “With the latest additions, the WDL includes 10,037 rare and unique items, comprising nearly 500,000 images. Content contributed by 102 institutions in 46 countries is on the WDL site, which can be accessed in seven languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.”

Now available: a new digital archive of recordings from Duke Chapel at Duke University. “This collection of 168 recordings features inspiring sermons from a variety of theologians and preachers, including a number of notable African American and female preachers. The collection includes both audio, and where available, video of the services.”

Now available: a Punjabi encyclopedia. Or, as I will probably go around repeating in my head all day, a Punjabipedia.

Facebook’s Pages are going to get a makeover. I actually like this change – the two column Page layout is just annoying.

Coming soon: an online archive chronicling the history of the Raleigh bicycle factory in Nottingham, England.

I didn’t know there was a Blackfoot digital library. Good afternoon, Internet…

I love your comments, I love your site suggestions, and I love you. Feel free to comment on the blog, or @ResearchBuzz on Twitter. Thanks!
