Footnote.com has added the Compiled Service Records of Union soldiers from Kentucky. Additional Union records for the following:

* Civil War Soldiers – Union – AR
* Civil War Soldiers – Union – Colored Troops 8th-13th Infantry
* Civil War Soldiers – Union – MS
* Civil War Soldiers – Union – UT
* Civil War Soldiers – Union – GA
* Civil War Soldiers – Union – Colored Troops 2nd-7th Infantry
* Civil War Soldiers – Union – OR
* Civil War Soldiers – Union – NV
* Civil War Soldiers – Union – Dakota

Also two interesting articles on the impact of Google’s book digitizing project, which promises to have a profound effect not just on researchers but on authors, the publishing industry, and society itself.

Robert Darnton pens a lengthy and thoughtful article in The New York Review of Books on the significance of it all, coupled with a look backward.

Lynn Chu, on the other hand, writes in the Wall Street Journal that the class action settlement now in process is a ripoff for authors.
