19th Century Medical Books, Bing, Archives, More: Thursday Morning Buzz, March 27, 2014

Bing has launched product ads.

Twitter is going to let you tag people in photos. You’ll also be able to share multiple photos in one tweet, which is nice.

Library and Archives Canada has launched an initial set of Alberta Residential School photos. More are coming. “Some 150,000 Aboriginal children attended over 130 residential schools located across the country.”

The Wellcome Library has undertaken a huge project to digitize 25,000 19th century medical books. “As with the Wellcome Library’s own collections we are interpreting ‘medicine’ quite broadly, to include related sciences, consumer health, sport and fitness and food and nutrition, as well as kinds of medical practice – mesmerism, phrenology and hydrotherapy, for example – that have since fallen out of favour, but which were important in their time.”

OOoooh, Lifehacker! How to stream your movie collection anywhere with Google Drive. This article also goes into other media like music.

More Google: A new Web tool lets you search Google without being tracked: “Disconnect routes your searches through a proxy before the major search engines receive your request. This way, it looks to Google or Bing like the search request is coming from Disconnect and they never know any information about you.”

A bunch of new collections are available at Archives.com. “These birth, death, and marriage indexes from Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, and Montana contain more than 10 million records.” Good morning, Internet…
