Geospatial & Statistical Data Center   http://fisher.lib.virginia.edu/  Site Reviews(0)
As more and more people are iscovering the value and importance of spatial data and analysis, discovering new online resources in this area is a real treat. Located in the impressive Alderman Library on the grounds of the University of Virginia, the Geospatial and Statistical Data Center provides a host of services to both the on-campus community and to those who visit their website. With a clean design, the homepage features a *Spotlight* area and a *Quick Links* area, which leads to things such as the historical census browser and the rather exhaustive Virginia Gazetteer. Visitors should also take a look at the materials contained within the *Collections* heading on the homepage. Here they can peruse such items as aerial photographs of Albemarle County as well as other collections of aerial materials. One tremendously helpful feature of the site is the *References Resources* area, which contains information about codes and symbols used on maps, along with handbooks and user guides to some of the resources offered here.

The Grapes of Staph: Microbiology   http://student.ccbcmd.edu/~gkaiser/goshp.html  Site Reviews(0)
With its witty appellation, the Grapes of Staph website is the creation of one Professor Gary Kaiser, who teaches microbiology at the Community College of Baltimore County. Over the past few years, Professor Kaiser has assembled a prodigious collection of materials that can be used by fellow educators and aspiring microbiology students from Neah Bay to Nepal. First-time visitors will want to delve right into the lecture guide, which provides hundreds of lecture note pages, illustrations, animations, and photomicrographs. Students who have just entered college will want to take a look at Professor Kaiser*s very helpful *Study Tips* area, which offers six specific suggestions on how to succeed in any college-level course. The *Tutorials* area also serves as a nice supplement, as it contains nice explanations of such processes as cellular respiration, photosynthesis, and of course, protein synthesis. The site is rounded out by a selection of external sites of interest, including links to the American Society for Microbiology and Science.
