Looking and Linking
"Can you help me find newspaper accounts of the Hungarian Revolution?"
What we did was go through our bound collections for Saturday Evening Post, Time, Newsweek, and oh, yes-- New York Times looking at the October-November 1952 issues. Why not the index? It seemed faster just to look at those times, and we didn't have a print Readers' Guide which went back that far. On days when technology does not deliver what is promised--instant access to everything-- I'm very thankful we decided to keep bound volumes.

That's not to say, I'm not thankful for internet links such as AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science)--A link which I found on a listserv and which has some resources on religion and science that's worth exploring. Just enter religion in the search area. With a few more clicks, you'll find articles, such as " Does God Play Dice? Divine Providence and Chance," on various topics where science and religion intersect. Add this site to your list for additional articles and resources when you may not be able to subscribe to the full journal or don't have that date.
