Did you know that CTREX Pro Subscribers can “bookmark” reviews for future reference?

While logged in, click on the star next to any title. This will save the review to your profile page. You can view your profile by selecting the icon with your username in the top-right.

Bookmarking has been available for a while now, but now you can create your own folders to organize your bookmarks into as many lists as you want. You can even print these lists or export their data.

Need to find a handful of titles on a certain topic? Create a new folder and move your bookmarks to it. The next time you need to compile a list, your old bookmarks will remain separate. Using this new tool, you can use CTREX to manage your research more flexibly.

Check it out, and let us know what you think! We're always looking for ways to improve the CTREX experience.

Search a free, online archive with 163,878 items from Helen Keller. You learn that she managed to live a long, productive life despite the loss of both her sight and hearing as a toddler. The archive is part of the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) web site, at http://www.afb.org/HelenKellerArchive.

As of June 2018, the searchable database includes 163,878 items.

These include correspondence, speeches, press clippings, scrapbooks, photographs, albums, architectural drawings, audio recordings, audio-visual materials and artifacts.

Because Keller lived from (1880-1968) and corresponded with many historical people, the collection reflects 80 years of social and political change. We found the collection to be easy to search, and each item has been annotated and tagged. Historical researchers will appreciate the use of standard archival practices for the arrangement and description of historical collections. Children will want to follow the online Kids Museum link, to The Helen Keller Kids Museum Online, is at http://braillebug.afb.org/hkmuseum.asp. Support for the work by The American Foundation for the Blind came from the National Endowment for the Humanities (http://www.neh.gov) and American Express.fs
