Finding more

On this website you can find information about digital projects by entering free text searches in the search field in the right sidebar, and by clicking on the categories in the left sidebar or on the tags added to each item or those in the tag cloud in the right sidebar. You can also use the overview of subjects. In view of the sheer number of digital projects concerning the First World War it will take some time before even the most important and longest existing projects will appear here.

To bridge this gap I give you here for some themes, subjects and countries the links to important websites which either present a theme or subject in a most detailed way, provide you with further links or contain even a web directory. In due time more links will be added to the selection presented here.
