Notes and Queries



ABC-CLIO recently released Historical Abstracts and America: History and Life

on the World Wide Web. During the development of the Web version of these

large databases, ABC-CLIO sought recommendations for interface improvements

from an extensive network of librarians and historians. Their suggestions helped

create an easy-to-navigate database on the Web that meets the needs of history and

library users. For more than 40 years, ABC-CLIO has been an industry leader in

the creation and publishing of high-quality reference publications. To review

either Historical Abstracts or America: History and Life on the Web, contact Sarah

Schweitzer at (800) 368-6868, extension 147, or e-mail at <sschweitzer@abc-

Published by the Ohio Historical Society since 1887, Ohio History hopes to

serve as a clearinghouse for information about Ohio historians, departments of

history, professional meetings, research activities, historical societies, museums,

and libraries. Such an undertaking depends, however, upon the cooperation of the

many individuals and institutions we endeavor to serve.  If you or your

organization are interested in placing an announcement in "Notes and Queries,"

please write to: Ohio History, Ohio Historical Society, 1982 Velma Avenue,

Columbus, Ohio 43211-2497. E-mail address <ohiohistory@ohiohistory.org>.

Production deadlines dictate that all dated materials (contests, meetings, requests

for papers) be in our office five months prior to publication.
