Welcome to the brand new ShipIndex.org! We’re excited to have the new site up, and over time I’ll share some information about where we’ve been, and where we’re headed. For the time being, it’s enough to know that the new site has much better functionality, and will allow us to do all kinds of new things. Over time, you’ll be able to limit searches to just those with illustrations, or limit by language (though right now every resource is in English – but that will change). We’ll have more and better links to help you more quickly find the resource you’re seeking.
On the blog, I plan to provide brief overviews of many of the resources in this collection. Already, there are some really incredible ones, such as Gordon Newell’s H. W. McCurdy’s Marine History of the Pacific Northwest, and many others. We’ll have more titles to add, from books to journals to online databases. If there’s a title you’d like to see added to the database, please drop me a line, either through the comments below, or via comments (at) shipindex (dot) org.
Again, welcome – and please do let us know what you think!
