Please Note: KWSnet
is taking an extended leave of absence from maintaining its online services, including web (KWSnet Annotated Subject Directory for the Web
), social media services (Twitter
), Zotero Library
(and its RSS
), You Tube
playlists. Requests for corrections, and for additions as well, will be attended to, but my own contributions will be much diminished and/or sporatic. Too much time on the Internet, and not enough in the physical world, is something I am working on re-balancing. So consider these services to now be no more than a snapshot in time and/or archival material, rather than up-to-the-minute resources. With that in mind, some of it may still be of interest or use to you.
