In the past I haven’t kept a running tally of content that has been removed from the database, but I have mentioned it. The database takes a huge hit when I have to remove 380,000 citations in one go! As mentioned in the prior post, we’ve looked over all online resources, just to make sure they’re working. Many are not. I am going to make a note of the ones that I’m deleting from the database on the table below; I’ll be updating this over the next month or two as a work through all of the problematic online resources.
|RESOURCE NAME||NOTES ABOUT THE RESOURCE|
|National Small Boat Register||As noted here, the database has been taken offline for an unknown period. Let’s just hope it does, eventually, return.|
|Blue World Web Museum||Google still shows the underlying data, but it’s not available. This collection had great links to images of ships from artwork.|
|Containership-info.com||Just not there anymore…|
|NOAA History: NOAA Coast and Geodetic Ships||I could not find any of the NOAA history pages anymore. A few pages may exist on the NOAA pages, but they’re not organized in the same way as in the past.|
|Union List of Historic Vessels in North America||This one threw me for a loop,|
I’ll keep adding to this list as I work through our data.
