It’s been cray-zeee.

SALT has joined the Flickr Commons. “SALT is an independent not-for-profit cultural institution from Turkey that explores critical and timely issues in visual and material culture and cultivates innovative programs for research and experimental thinking.”

Duke University has digitized its DukEngineer student publication and made it available online. The collection spans 1940-2013 and includes over 200 issues.

A new service attempts to tell real images from fakes by using forensics.

The Lowcountry Digital History Initiative has added three new exhibits. They are Charleston’s Cigar Factory Strike, 1945-46, Keeper of the Gate: Philip Simmons Ironwork in Charleston, South Carolina, and Voyage of the Echo: The Trials of an Illegal Trans-Atlantic Slave Ship.

A digital archive of the lives of British and Commonwealth citizens involved in World War I has gone online. “The records of more than 4.5 million men and 40,000 women who served with the British army overseas are currently listed. Millions of others will be added to the website in the coming months including the names of members of the Royal Flying Corp/Royal Air Force, the Royal Navy, the Canadian Expeditionary Force and the Australian and New Zealand Imperial Forces.”

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!
