Guide to Machine-Readable Historical Data.
Baer, Marc
This guide is intended as an aid for historians interested in utilizing the computer as a resource for teaching undergraduate college level courses. Four types of information are listed. Part I lists computer based instructional packages which concetrate on data analysis (in contrast with simulations, games, or tutorials) and which use pre-1950 data. The second part lists historical datasets which are defined as non-survey data. The datasets cover periods before 1950. Part III lists archives, including addresses, whose holdings are extensive. The concluding section lists articles and papers which describe actual classroom use of quantitative historical data utilizing computers as an instructional mode. According to the author, this listing is not exhaustive. (Author/RM)
